I started working for BTP in 1994, qualified as an Architect in June 1995 and was promoted to Associate in January 1998 and Director in 2002.
During the past 20 years at BTP, I have gained extensive knowledge in all types of housing, including external recladding of tower blocks, health care and education. I have worked on a number of historic projects, which have developed my conservation philosophy and strategy. I specialise in sustainability, all types of supported housing, conservation and BIM and have obtained accreditation as a Code for Sustainable Homes and Energy Assessor, BIM Accredited Professional and CA Conservation Architect with RIBA.
When not at work, I enjoy skiing and sailing. I run regularly and enjoy swimming. I also mentor and train Part 2 students to achieve professional qualifications. In 2012 I was shortlisted for Architect of the Year in Women in Construction. In 2014 I judged a student competition for Women in Property, North West Student Award.
