I am committed to using information in the most effective way in order to improve people’s lives. 

As a qualified statistician and member of the Government Statistical Service, I have worked for most of my career in social services related roles. I am also a qualified project and programme manager, and have applied these skills effectively to social services projects. I was responsible for collecting information on social services from local authorities on behalf of the Welsh government in my early career. I worked in the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) improving the way information on social care was collected and used. I also worked in Children’s and Social Services policy in the Welsh Government where I was responsible for developing policy on outcomes and improvement. I am a fluent Welsh speaker and committed to ensuring the Welsh language is considered carefully in all social services policy.
