Position: North West Representative
Year joined the board: 2015
Work: Senior Policy Advisor in the Northern Engagement and Strategy team at DfT, since January 2021.
Career history: Before joining DfT I worked at Transport for Greater Manchester for 4 years, first in the sustainable journeys team before later joining the policy team. Prior to that I worked at both Oldham and Rochdale local authorities in transport policy, with a particular focus on sustainable travel. I have a degree in Environmental Management from the University of Leeds.
Why joined: I joined the board after being involved with Modeshift at a local authority level and seeing all the great work being achieved. Being passionate about both sustainable travel and transport in the north, when the position of North West Rep became available it was a no brainer!
Personal: Outside of work I enjoy travelling, music festivals and gigs, and of course going to watch my beloved Oldham Athletic.
