I have been a devoted mindfulness and meditation practitioner for over 15 years. My professional background includes youth work, strategic planning, change management and developing teaching and training programmes. I have been working as Programme Director at Breathworks since 2013, delighting in the opportunity to use my experience and skills to help grow and develop what we do. My favourite part of the job is supporting students in the training programme to bring more and more of themselves into their mindfulness practice and teaching. I believe that all people, given the right conditions and supports, can learn to thrive. I am also an ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order.
