Her team is focused on working across public, private and non-profit sectors to deliver innovative solutions that tackle obesity and loneliness in the UK.

Prior to Nesta, she spent many years working at and supporting a number of social enterprises within the health and social care sectors. She has led teams strategically and operationally to understand the problem, design solutions, implement products and services, work with partners and improve their impact.

Outside of work she loves getting close to nature, meditating and eating (and sometimes cooking) delicious food!
