“I am delighted to join the PiPA Board and am passionate about how we can continue to impact meaningful change for parents and carers working in the performing arts. I am thrilled to be part of such an inclusive and forward-thinking organisation and look forward to being challenged, celebrating success and always looking ahead. As a working parent, with two toddlers, I know only too well the almighty juggle parents and carers face to make a career in the arts work. I hope to bring practical ideas and creative thinking to delivering our mission.”
