I'm the Founder, Managing Director and Lead Consultant here at Innovate & Thrive Co. That's a proper mouthful! But essentially it means that I'm responsible for running the business and working with you to shape your strategy and operations, and deliver your change.
I've had a varied career in the corporate world, starting out as a PA, then became a Business Manager, Implementation Specialist, and finally a Change Manager and People Manager in a FTSE 100 telecoms company. I'm a qualified Change Management Practitioner and soon to be qualified Strategy Implementation Professional. I'm trained to Level 7 in Operations Management.
I launched Innovate & Thrive Co. in 2018, and work with clients around the world from my home in Bournemouth, Dorset. The coast is my happy place, so you'll often find me wandering along the beach and swimming in the sea.

I'm the Operations Manager here at Innovate & Thrive Co. I'm responsible for all of the things that keep the business running and, more importantly, supporting you whilst you're working with us.
I started my career in an Accountants and became part AAT qualified. Then I lived in France for a while, and worked in a school and youth club. Back in the UK, I had various PA roles within the Voluntary Sector and for a Director at a Local Authority, where I stayed for a good few years. I love to use my French now, which has come in handy more than a few times!
I focus on ensuring our invoicing and accounts are up to date, keeping our client contracts in order, onboarding new clients, managing the Change Toolkit licenses, responding to client queries and requests and providing client project coordination.
