My Background

My initial training was in chemistry and I worked in the chemical industry for 15 years starting in Research and Development and moving to roles in Marketing, Procurement and Process Development. Seven years of Customer Services experience for Sky Television has helped to hone my customer focus and skills. I've lead teams and communities, developed profitable new products, managed multi-million dollar bids, and delivered culture change programs across a global function of 60 colleagues.

Outside Work

I love to do Latin dancing especially salsa, bachata and kizomba styles. Running helps me to relax and stay healthy, and most years I'll do a few 10K races or half-marathons. Cooking is always a passion and some of my favourite dishes are wild mushroom risotto, lentil dahl and chicken in achiote and lime. I support Heart of Midlothian which offers more pain than pleasure most seasons!
