I am passionate about equipping women to thrive after cancer, tackling health inequities and helping leaders to boost workforce resilience. I believe that everyone deserves to be heard, understood and thrive no matter their life circumstances. 

 

With over three decades experience of dealing with cancer, I realised that surviving cancer is one thing, living life to the full is another. I give women tools to thrive after cancer as I believe there is more to life than merely existing after diagnosis. In my opinion, survival is a bus stop, thriving is the destination.   

In 2017, I published my first book titled, Navigating Your New Normal. I defined ‘new normal’ within the context of trauma long before the term came into popular use in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. You can call me the queen of thriving in new normal. The framework I introduced was designed to equip leaders for boosting and sustaining resilience in a changed work landscape.  

My passion for improving healthcare provision has led to me consulting on health inequity issues and creating bespoke content for various organisations, including Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW). I lend my expertise to academia as a Researcher, Patient Teaching Partner and Visiting Lecturer at Cardiff University. I love giving back so I am an Ambassador for Maggie’s Centres and Cancer Research UK. I am also a Public Health Volunteer for Breast Cancer Now. One of my mantras is: ‘ am here to make things better’.
