Programme Administrator, UK

Business Development Assistant, UK

I thrive on diversity. My choices have led me to where I am today. Change is a constant and I love it. I believe that we are never too old to change, and there’s nothing that can’t be changed, if you put your mind to it. Start simple. Just start. Working at Impact allows me to experience, challenge and grow. Outside of work, I am a keen baker and love to entertain. Moving and settling in the Lake District from South Africa has been a positive life changing experience.

I'm passionate about helping others become their best selves. I work on a variety of leadership and wellbeing programs. I'm passionate about being in wilderness environments, particularly snow-covered mountains. More recently, I share those adventures with my husband and young daughters.
