About

I have over 20 years senior experience at both a strategic and operational level in public health. I have held a number of senior management roles which have required me to provide leadership, direction, co-ordination and support for strategic plans in relation to substantial public health programmes. This is coupled with a strong academic background which spans teaching and learning and research. My professional interests are centred on the relationship between public health policy and supporting population behaviour change. I have worked in the public health arena in the context of inequalities and community development.
