My working life was initially within the Royal Air Force as an Administration Officer, mainly responsible for personnel, finance and infrastructure. After 16 years, I became a Bursar at a school in Wales and subsequently in the Middle East. I was involved in all aspects of support functions, including personnel, finance, facilities management and infrastructure development as well as income generation. I see the need to ensure the Rowans Hospice has exceptional staff, facilities and funding to work at its best. I look forward to using my experience to help ensure the Charity continues to develop and flourish during these difficult times, providing the incredible levels of support to the community, for which it is well known.
