I am the Assistant Director for Health, Education and Youth and started working at the GLA in July 2019.

I’d spent the last decade working in national Government on health and care policy across Whitehall departments, including at the Government Office for London, and more recently taking on a national role responsible for making the UK’s Civil Service more diverse and inclusive.

My career has mainly been in the health and care sector, working at almost every level possible, from my early days managing a busy A&E department in a major London hospital, right through to working at an international level very recently overseeing the UK’s Overseas Territories preparations for Brexit.

I live in south east London with my husband and children, am a Fellow and Board Member of the British American Project.
