After graduating from the University of Bath with a BSc in Architecture, I started my career designing visitor attractions with Kay Elliott in South Devon. During this time I developed a passion for business operations and strategy, subsequently leading to my decision to shift career paths and join Accenture in 2011. During my time at Accenture I worked as part of the Strategy Operations team, specialising in operational improvement, cost reduction and value generation at a number of Financial Services clients. My experience was varied, ranging from strategy work, to end to end change management, to designing new to market customer offerings. 
While I really enjoyed my time at Accenture, I made the decision to join Berkeley in 2018. I was excited by the prospect of working in a much smaller company, while providing opportunity to work across different industries and highly varied roles. The relentless focus on ‘doing the right thing’ for the client really resonated with me, along with working alongside a very passionate and experienced Berkeley team. 

Outside of work I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband Dom. Having been born and bred in South Devon, I take every opportunity to get out to the countryside, be that walking or running. I am also a keen footballer (well, more recently Futsal player) and skier. Essentially I do all that I can to warrant eating chocolate!
