Who am I?
I am an experienced senior manager and HR&OD professional who celebrates 35 years in supporting people, both service users, students and employees across many areas of the public sector including, health, social care, higher education and management.
I am extremely passionate about improving the health and well-being of individuals and our communities and have, over many years used my extensive knowledge and skills as a qualified nurse, neuro-linguistic programme practitioner, service manager, business psychology practitioner and executive coach to do this. I have enabled, trained, educated and coached people and teams to live in the present, believe in themselves, acknowledge their potential and be self-defined in what makes them feel and be successful.
Most of my work has been achieved as a direct result of building effective partnerships with both commercial and not-for-profit organisations across health, social care, education and research institutes. In doing this I have repeatedly achieved positive changes in a range of service areas for example; improving the quality of health services to older people, joint training for all professionals working to improve the lives of people with enduring mental illness and giving a real VOICE to service users who have disabilities, are terminally ill or people who simply want to improve the customer service in large hospitals.
What do I do?
As part of the team at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre I am the first point of contact for partnership development queries from individuals and organisations across the globe looking to partner with the OMC to: ‘reduce suffering, promote resilience and realise human potential across the lifespan through mindfulness’
Why do I love working at the OMC?
I am very happy to be part of the team that supports the OMC to fulfil its passion in providing education and increasing accessibility to mindfulness practices that helps people acquire lifelong strategies to be independently strong and have a meaningful, healthy and a quality life that they appreciate and enjoy.
