I am from the United Kingdom and came to Houston, Texas in 2007, moving to San Antonio in 2012. I am proud to be a dual citizen in my adopted home. My husband and I have a blended family of four adult children, three dogs and a parrot.
The majority of my career has been in the corporate world and ranges from finance to major IT implementations, creating a training division, manufacturing, production and shipping and running international customer service teams. In all these roles relationships and collaboration was essential.
Throughout my career, I have mentored and coached teams and individuals, so starting a Life coaching business in the UK, was a natural fit. I worked with corporate and private clients to ensure successful results. It was a satisfying and fun business. In 2020, I completed an MBA in Leadership and Sustainability.
I have served as the Chief Executive Officer of Alpha Home, a not-for-profit focused on the treatment of substance use, for women. I then took a hard and bold decision to join Chosen Care, as their Chief
Operating Officer. This move was due to my passion for the welfare of children and the personal connection I have in the field. Now as the President and CEO of Child Advocates San Antonio (CASA), I truly feel this is my forever home.
The not-for-profit sector is challenging and worth every minute of the dedication it takes, as you truly know you are making a difference.
I am driven by a desire for all people to know that they can choose a fulfilling life. Where you start does not determine where you finish.
