In support we deliver on programs and manage day-to-day operations and infrastructure. I really enjoy my role as it’s very diverse, one day I am canoeing on Windermere and the next cleaning boots! My favourite programs feature outdoor activities and journeys. People see me as a steady pair of hands and a person who does a quality, professional job. Outside work I keep myself fit and active, and enjoy chilling out with my wife Emma and travelling in our camper van.

They say the good life is built with good relationships, so this is what I spend most of my time on – professionally and personally. At Impact I build relations with existing clients and companies which didn’t have a chance to get to know us (jet). I also support my team in project management. Staying in a country inn with my husband, son and camera is the best way for me to relax.

After several leadership positions in social enterprise, non-profit and retail, I recently fulfilled my ambition to work for one of my favourite world changing companies.
