Who am I?

“Dance has always been a big part of my life and I have been lucky enough to spend much of my 20 year career working in and supporting the arts within Yorkshire.

Initially expecting to work at NSCD for a couple of years, NSCD has sprinkled its magic dust and continues to challenge and excite many years later. A place where two days are never the same!

Outside of NSCD I am kept busy with my 3 very lovely (and noisy) young children, who remind me every day about the good in the world. I also spend a lot of time watching football as a very proud Wolverhampton Wanderers supporter.”
