I have been at UK Deaf Sport since November 2016 in a number of different roles. My current role is Executive Director which means I am responsible for leading the organisation and supporting the team in delivering UKDS’s strategy towards achieving ‘Every Deaf Person Active and Inspired by Sport and Physical Activity’. This is a really exciting time to be part of UK Deaf Sport as we expand our team, increase participation and support our partners, deaf sports and Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in sport and physical activity. My background is mainly in programme management and working with partners and organisations. I am Deaf and wear hearing aids. In my spare time, I am completing a part time Executive MBA, train and compete as part of GB Deaf Tennis team and lead my local Brownies and Guide group. I am also a Director on the boards of UK Council on Deafness, Youth Sports Trust and Bath University Student Union.
