I live near Swansea with my husband and 1 of 2 of my adult children.
I have been a public servant for 35 years. In May 2015 I joined the Community Health Council movement as the Chief Officer at Hywel Dda Community Health Council. In 2016, I was appointed as Chief Executive at the Board of Community Health Councils on a job share basis until I took on the role full time in 2019.
For most of the last 15 years, my work has focused on the NHS in Wales. I was an independent reviewer of the leadership and governance of NHS Trusts and Local Health Boards in Wales, a governance advisor working on the 2009 NHS reforms in Wales, and a Director at Healthcare Inspectorate Wales.
I am committed to encouraging and enabling members of the public to be actively involved in decisions affecting the design and delivery of health and social care services for their families and local communities.
I am delighted to have been appointed as the first Chief Executive of Llais and I feel passionate about the work we do.
