Early on, my work as a veterinary surgeon gave me a problem solving mindset and a strong understanding of problems and the people involved. Since then I have worked in global commercial organisations and Not-For-Profits in the healthcare space, managing innovation within complex contexts. Before joining Livework, I worked in the innovation team at Cancer Research UK, leading the design and testing new health interventions that could impact cancer rates.
Having crossed a number of disciplines, I see the potential in cross-pollinating knowledge from different sectors. I believe the power of design is in helping people understand alternative perspectives.
