1. What do you most like about being on the Board?

The board members have a diverse mix of experience, thoughts and approaches. It is great for networking and everyone involved is really committed to getting the best quality. I especially enjoying hearing from people with more challenging perspectives.  

2. What do you bring to the Board?

I have almost 20 years experience of being a fundraiser and hope that board colleagues appreciate having a senior female leader on the board. There have historically been fewer women in Executive Director roles across the sector, so it’s great that the board has embraced this and I’m delighted to be Vice Chair. 

3. What are you looking forward to about this year’s Fundraising Convention?

The Bigger Picture sessions, because there is something for everyone and lots of great thought-provoking sessions to give context to any fundraiser.
