Director of Operations and Business Development
I am delighted to have joined FitzRoy. I wanted 2020 to be the year where I found a role that was all about the people. I knew instantly when I first visited FitzRoy that the values and culture were a perfect fit for me. I know the health and social care sector is challenging but there is nothing more rewarding than helping people live fulfilling lives and achieving their dreams. FitzRoy really does transform lives and I am privileged to be leading our services across the country.
