Alex worked for many years in leisure and hospitality, until a career change in 2006 brought her into the charity sector.

She joined Thrive’s Senior Management Team in 2013, as Head of Operations, to manage the 3 regional centres. Her role changed last year, and her primary focus is now on supporting Senior Management Team colleagues to complete outstanding projects.

Current priorities are developing a robust Monitoring and Evaluation system, reviewing Staff Development processes, and improving communication with volunteers to ensure volunteering is a positive experience. Her main interests are her 8 grandchildren aged 4 - 21, who keep her active, music and theatre – she sings with the Cardiff Blues Rugby Choir.
