My working life has been committed to working within the public and charity sectors with a focus on community engagement, homelessness, and youth work.

Before joining Engage Britain, I worked at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation as their Senior Participation Officer, at Crisis UK as their Member Involvement Co-ordinator, Housing and Homelessness Officer at Hackney Council, and as a freelance consultant, facilitator, and trainer.

I am passionate about developing policy solutions alongside the people most affected by them. I firmly believe that our best policies are created when we have the right people meaningfully involved in decision-making; working in harmony to co-produce polices that benefit individuals and society.
