Qualifications: BSc (Hons) Psychology, Leadership & Management (Care) Level 4, CMI Level 7 Leadership & Management

Career overview: I joined the Ashbridge family in June 2020 & support the people management across the organisation, working alongside managers and staff to help people realise their full potential. Prior to joining the Ashbridge family, I enjoyed various senior management roles in the Health and Social Care sector for over 15 years.

Professional interests: I have always been professionally interested in working with people and staff teams to achieve their aspirations by understanding the whole person and giving them the opportunities to experience new and diverse interactions. I enjoy seeing people realising their professional potential and supporting them to attain it. I also developed a strong belief in the importance of early years attachment whilst studying Psychology at university, and have got a passion for nurturing a child’s emotional and social development to support them to explore the world around them.

Personal interests: I am married with 2 children – Manny and Nene both of whom have enjoyed accessing the fantastic resources and outdoor facilities at Lindle Lane. As a family we all love the outdoors and music. I have been a leader of a local Girlguiding unit for over 15 years and enjoy supporting the children there to access exciting and fun filled activities. My other biggest passion is food and cooking – I come from a long line of fantastic Bengali cooks and hope to continue the tradition with my children!
