I am a Loughborough University graduate and now live and work in Loughborough – it turns out I couldn't stay away!

I run my own advocacy, consultancy and training business, supporting those striving for LGBT+ inclusion. Outside of work I like to dabble in cooking new recipes, going walking for the day and growing fresh fruit and veg at our allotment.

International Women's Day means so many things to me, and it’s hard to articulate in just one sentence. However, predominantly it is a day to celebrate all women; cisgender and transgender women alike. Our differences should unite and empower us as a collective, not divide and marginalise us as individuals. I am proud to be a woman and to celebrate and rejoice with fellow sisters, regardless of their heritage or background.
