Position: Staff Team – Customer Best Practice & Events Specialist
Year joined Modeshift: I joined the Modeshift Management Board in 2010 and held the position of North East, Yorkshire & Humber Regional Rep for 5 years. I started my new role as Modeshift’s Customer Best Practice and Events Specialist at the beginning of May and am loving being part of the core delivery team.
Career history: I started my journey in the sustainable and active travel world in 2009, working on Middlesbrough Councils ‘Healthy Towns’ project. After a fab few years dressing up in various costumes for Walk to School events, I moved on to manage Durham County Councils ‘Local Motion’ project, then moved on to the private sector to manage the delivery of the STARS South Yorkshire project. And just like that, 12 years later, I’m here!
Why did you join Team Modeshift? I absolutely love how passionate everyone within Team Modeshift is about our common cause of promoting sustainable and active travel, and hearing the new and innovative ways schools, workplaces and community groups go about engaging their audiences and pushing their message is fab!
Outside of Modeshift: I can do a bit of Irish dancing, love noting more than a good Spin session and my favourite place to be is outside; the back garden, at the seaside, in forest – as long as there’s fresh air, you’ll find me there!
