Appointed 1 February 2019
"I first got involved in fostering and children’s services in 2003 and have been involved ever since. I’ve held leadership roles for the past 12 years and currently I am the CEO for Staf(Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum). I bring extensive experience of developing the workforce, supporting foster families and listening to children as a foster carer for the past 10 years. More recently I have and continue to serve as a Director on a number of family-focused charitable boards.
I firmly believe that any system that is intended to support children and young people should be the best that it can be, and I am committed to upholding this principle as a Board Member for Children’s Hearing Scotland through committing to the promise from the Independent Care Review recommendations (February 2020) and amplifying the voices of children and young people at the heart of decision-making."
