Head of Fundraising
I graduated from the Liverpool Institute for Performing arts in 2008 with a degree in Theatre Production. My first full time job after University was at the Liverpool Arena and Convention centre before moving back to Dunfermline to live with my husband.
I moved into the voluntary sector in 2011 when I started working with Sue Ryder as a Community and Events Fundraiser, before moving to Parkinson’s UK. I was a Regional Fundraiser for 7 years at Parkinson’s UK covering the East of Scotland. At Parkinson’s UK I was involved in a great deal of different event, projects and partnerships throughout the years.
I started as Head of Fundraising with Make 2nds Count in November 2019 after meeting Lisa and Louise at an event. A combination of Lisa’s passion and commitment to helping raise awareness of Secondary breast cancer and having two of my family members affected by breast cancer, are the reasons I wanted join the charity.
Interesting fact – Sir Paul McCartney awarded me my graduation certificate. The picture of him and I is hanging in my home office.
