Why did you pick to work at PCA?

I have worked in various roles within the charity and education sector over the last 17 years and have enjoyed the challenges and opportunities that came with each one. I am a firm believer that everything in life happens for a reason, and after speaking to the Founder & CEO Ali Stunt, I felt compelled to work for Pancreatic Cancer Action to raise funds for future research. I feel proud and privileged to be a part of the Pancreatic Cancer Action family. And I’m pleased there is still room for a little more passion and enthusiasm, which I hope to bring into what is already an inspirational charity.

What are your hobbies and interests ?

I have none…I have three children! Of course, I’m joking. As a family, we love going on adventures together at home and abroad. I love travelling and sharing new cultures with my children. In my spare time, I enjoy being creative with my sewing machine and making gifts and home furnishings. I run 30km each week, which is my bit of escapism from my hectic life.
