Areas of Expertise

I am an imaginative and pragmatic collaborator with a holistic approach and rich experience. I particularly enjoy cross-fertilising ideas and approaches between sectors. This meant I particularly enjoyed undertaking a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business with Cambridge University, enabling me to share ideas with an international cohort across a range of industries.

My strengths lie in undertaking strategic analysis of what I'm working on, then identifying opportunities for positive transformation and deliverability. I have worked on a wide variety of urban and rural housing-led projects. This includes inner-city regeneration, extra care, community-led and specialist housing. I have extensive experience of financial appraisal and scheme optimisation at project and programme level. I became an independent consultant in 2015, and have worked with a number of private sector clients, and local authorities at various stages of expanding their own housing delivery programmes. I am on the board of a small specialist HA in London which seeks to provide community-led housing for older LGBTQ+ people.
