Biography

Biography

After a 30-year career in banking and finance, I joined English Partnerships (the Urban Regeneration Agency) in 1995. This began 20+ years in regeneration, both urban and rural, delivering economic growth projects with a particular focus on areas of deprivation in Plymouth, Torbay and Bristol as well as the market and coastal towns of the south-west.

I worked for the South West Regional Development Agency for the whole of its life and latterly, until retirement from the Civil Service, for 9 years at the European Regional Development Fund. Following my retirement in 2018, I am now Compliance Officer (Maternity Cover) for Acceleration Through Innovation2
I also graduated as BA(Hons) in Geography at Plymouth University in the summer of 2021.
