Who am I?
I am the Business Manager based at our Oxford Office. I have a professional background in the supported housing sector as well as mental health voluntary sector management. When not at work you can usually find me on a bicycle up a hill somewhere in the countryside.
What do I do?
I lead the Operations Team who are always busy delivering our varied programme of courses. I also support the administrative activities of our CEO, and Management Team in developing collaborative partnerships locally, nationally and internationally.
Why do I love working at the OMC?
I have a professional and personal interest in mental health and wellbeing. About 1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives and the Oxford Mindfulness Centre makes a significant contribution in alleviating this distress and building resilience across our community.
The August 2019 edition of our Newsletter is now available, with highlights including the introduction of live online mindfulness courses as well as a new OMC curriculum.More
