As well as directing the organisation’s business development and entry into new sectors and spaces, she is a core part of the facilitation team that uses storytelling practices to support people to have a voice on the issues that are pertinent to them.

Her specialisms include project management and facilitation.
She also has a PhD in the field of media convergence, awarded by the University of Liverpool and has a number of publications relating both to this area of study as well as her current practice.
