I joined Ace Centre in 2012 following a slightly diverse career. Firstly in sales and account management in the printing industry, followed by teaching in the health and social care sector, lecturing service provider organisation for children with a disability and teaching ICT to students. My involvement with AAC and Assistive Technology started mid 1990’s when my daughter was born, who has complex disabilities and is herself an AAC user. My relationship with Ace Centre dates back to 1998 when I first sought help to meet my child’s emerging communication and technology needs. Today, my role at Ace Centre is to support our team of AAC consultants with equipment and resource preparation and to support our clients with training and technical issues. I also manage our assessment equipment and resources. Apart from work and family interest in AAC, I am also a trustee and chair of 1Voice Communicating Together – a small national charity that provides support to AAC users and families. Outside the world of AAC, I enjoy dining out, travelling about, going to music concerts and reading. I have also been known to go to the gym occasionally!
