I joined the Board in September 2022. I enjoy using my professional and technical expertise to scrutinise the services provided by Havebury for the benefit of current and future residents.
I am an assistant director of development at Aster Group, a large housing associate based in Wiltshire, with homes across much of the south-west of England. I have worked in the housing sector since 2016, when I joined Central & Cecil Housing Trust (C&C), working in their Development team. In August 2018, I became executive director for property and development, responsible for development, asset management, repairs, and property compliance. Following C&C’s merger with Aster in January 2022, I now have responsibility for development activity in London.
I am a structural engineer by training and worked for Arup for over 25 years, designing buildings, including offices, museums, schools, and housing. I am passionate about sustainable design and have a growing interest in heat networks and the contribution they can make to reducing carbon emissions. Outside of work, I am a trustee of CTU Collective and Camden Highline, both Camden-based charities. I moved to Cambridge in 2020 and am the group scout leader at the 1st Trumpington Scout Group.
