As an accountant with over 20 years experience across a variety of sectors, Michele has worked both in the UK and internationally. Settling in Wiltshire in 2013, she currently works for a national care charity, where she has led the transformation of financial processes across the South West. Being the parent of a child with autism has given her opportunities to engage with organisations supporting carers and parent carers. In recent years has actively participated in events and forums to bring the voice of the carer to local authority consultations. Outside of work she enjoys time with her family, has a love of houseplants and can be found most evenings with a crochet hook and yarn close by.
