The Executive


Based In East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire I am an Associate Member of the Association for Coaching (AMAC) and hold the 'Advanced Certificate in Coaching Practice' qualification.


I became a professional coach following a successful career in the Fire & Rescue Service where I achieved the rank of Assistant Chief Fire Officer of one of the largest Fire Services in the country. I held the corporate position of Executive Director of Operational Delivery, Learning & Development and Human Resources. My work within the 'World Rescue Organisation' has received national and international recognition.


The role of the voluntary sector in our society is important to me and my own personal contribution includes being a non-executive director of a national child safety charity, a member of Scotland's Children's Panel system and as 'Chair' of my local Citizens Advice Bureau.
