Throughout my working career in the NHS and outside of it, it has always been a passion of mine to make things better, to be part of something that has a positive impact. The premise is always the same: invest time in improving the things we have to do and make the small things easy so that collectively they make the big things easy. Working for SARD is the epitome of this.
I have always felt that it is important to understand why we do things, asking the important questions and getting to the real nub of the questions in order to produce the best answers. If my skills and knowledge, combined with the talents of those around me, can help have a positive impact on the organisations we are working with then I am achieving my goals.
I have worked in the private and the public sector over the last 16 years. Prior to working with SARD I spent five years in the NHS, helping create positive change, living the day to day challenges and witnessing the challenges faced by others. My last role was Head of Learning and Development at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust.
Like many of my colleagues I like to indulge in activities outside of work, and I am currently finishing off a number of writing projects, which I find both relaxing and rewarding. Who knows, one day you may get to read some of my work from the bestseller list.
