Passionate about making connections between humans and digital. I have worked in Local Government information and technology for over three decades. I am energised by the opportunities that design, data, and technology bring to improve the way we live and work. I am a champion for seeing the human aspects of digital. As a leader and role model helping to develop peoples skills, mindsets, shift behaviours and adoption of new skills. It’s important to me that any digital strategy nurtures an environment that enables creativity to exploit digital and data. Over the years I have participated in national initiatives and pathfinders, and worked with colleagues across the Dorset NHS and Social Care system to bring the concept of an integrated care record to life. More recently I have collaborated to create a shared vision for Digital Dorset and lead on delivering various priorities within it.
