I began my career in fundraising as a Telephone Campaign caller during my studies at Cambridge University, and loved chatting to people to raise money for a great cause so much that I kept doing it! I joined the Development Office at Gonville and Caius College, managing the Annual Fund, the in-office fundraising team and the most successful Oxbridge telephone campaign to date. I then moved to Prostate Cancer UK to manage the Pioneers programme and major donor recruitment, communications and events.
I volunteer my time at several women’s rights and gender equality charities, particularly as Fundraising Manager at My Body Back Project and a trained Workshop Facilitator for school groups with the Fawcett Society. I am excited by opportunities to empower women and younger donors in philanthropy.
