I am Fundraising and Supporter Relations Manager, responsible for all things fundraising, which enable my incredible colleagues to carry out the important work of protecting and enhancing Lake District and Cumbrian landscapes.

I have over 28 years’ experience in fundraising, which began as a regeneration consultant back in my home city of Liverpool. I then managed the fundraising team within the Economic Regeneration Office at Wigan Council before moving into the charity sector, where I have worked for several national charities including Street League and OnSide Youth Zones. 

Having lived around the country, I am now happily settled in Cumbria where I have been a regular visitor since childhood and proud to be part of a team that is passionate about protecting this unique, important, and breathtaking landscape. Away from work, I can regularly be found hiking, swimming, paddleboarding and cycling. I’m a yoga nut and I’m trying to learn Welsh, but my greatest passions are my cat Albie, and labradors Sandi and Bruce!
