Head of Business & Innovation


Where's your favourite place in Somerset?

"Probably Glastonbury Tor for the panoramic views and on-top-of-the-world feeling.  Also no matter what time of day (or night!) you’re there, there’s always something interesting going on."

Do you have a hidden talent or any hobbies?

"I’m pretty good at creating clarity from chaos, and I love any sort of big, messy challenge – particularly if it helps others.  My kids also tell me I’m the Best Mummy in the World, so that’s a bonus đŸ˜Š"

What's the best thing about your job at Young Somerset?

"If I say Nik, do I get a pay rise?!  Then it would have to be indulging my passions for organising, improving, innovating and partnering…getting out and about in my glorious home county (sometimes in wellies)…and calling it work!"

And finally, Ninjas or Pirates?

"Pirates, no contest - I love the sea.  I also had more than a few ancestors in the merchant navy, so it must be in the genes (they’re practically the same thing right)?"
