She unlocks the economic value of ideas, culture, places and people—by building brands and circular economies that reduce waste, and wasted talent. She is interested in applying advanced manufacturing to evolve craft skills, and exploring how heritage assets can be reframed to deliver opportunities for economic development. She is passionate about rare breeds, especially the Clydesdale horses that she breeds and trains. She also keeps bees and tries to be a gardener.
