I have worked in the Visual Impairment sector throughout my career; my last role being the Senior Manager leading the Guide Dogs service in Wales. My work has centered on the re-enablement of visually impaired people, as a practitioner, manager and then senior leader. My time was focused on supporting customers and leading teams through cultural and operational change.

I am passionate about supporting all early intervention work (Rehabilitation / Habilitation) and have always been impressed with Sight Cymru’s work helping people through early diagnosis towards better independence. I have represented the Visual Impairment sector on the Welsh Government’s National Eye Care Steering group for a number of years; additionally, supporting their Low Vision and Children’s Services groups where I have championed the needs of visually impaired adults and children. I presently help with Sight Cymru’s visually impaired club in Abergavenny which is great fun.
