I have worked in international health development since 2004. I worked in a consulting firm for 10 years supporting, managing, and contributing to consultancies in health systems strengthening, SRMNCH, HIV, and more. I then moved to the NHS aiming to understand better the realities of working within a health system. I learned a lot.
In 2016 I took the independent consulting plunge to allow me the flexibility to be a more present parent. And it was the best decision I ever made.
As well as working as a consultant, I want to support other women to grow their practice. The Women's Consulting Workshop makes that a reality.
I have worked in international development since 1995. My focus is organisational development. My first role was as a Project Manager with an NGO in Armenia. I worked in a variety of countries and roles until I moved to work with a consulting firm in 2001.
In 2016 I started out on my own as an independent consultant. It was precarious. And felt scary. More than anything I wanted to chat with other women who were doing the same thing.
The Women's Consulting Workshop provides that space.
Helen and I set up Turas Partners in 2020. This is where you can find out more about our consulting work.
