Public Affairs Manager
Place of work / study:
Alzheimer’s Society (Left 2022)
What does your work involve
Influencing government/politicians to change policy/legislation to have a more positive impact on people affected by dementia. My work cuts across health care, social care and research.
Tell us a little about yourself:
I took on this role at the beginning of the pandemic, in April 2020, so it’s been an exceptionally busy time as people affected by dementia have been worst hit by the pandemic. Like so many who work at Alzheimer’s Society, my family is affected by dementia. My Nana lived in a care home before she unfortunately contracted Covid-19 and died last year.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself:
I’m a keen climber and love (watching) ballet.
