Finance and Office Lead

I started with CCA in April 2014 as shop manager in Sonning Common, and in September 2015 moved across to Central Services as Office Manager. I became the finance and office lead and part of the senior management team in 2023.

I attend Reading Family Church, have two daughters and six grandchildren. I am originally from South Africa and have been living in the UK for 27 years. I love the outdoors so you will find me out walking on the weekends or away for the weekend, somewhere near the sea, in our VW campervan. My passion has always been to work in a place which makes a difference in people’s lives, and so am very grateful to have the opportunity to work at CCA.
