Head of Development
As Head of Development, I am responsible for leading and implementing the fundraising strategy for the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, including the George Institute for Global Health, UK. My focus is on securing major gifts to support the priorities of the Department and the Institute, and building a sustainable philanthropic income stream.
I have ten years’ experience fundraising at a senior strategic level within the university sector, working with academic colleagues, high-level volunteers and major donors to forge strong philanthropic relationships, solicit 6- and 7-figure gifts and create robust pipelines for future income.
I split my time equally between the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and the George Institute for Global Health, and work closely with the central University of Oxford Development Office.
Previously, I spent over ten years as a marketing specialist working for scientific and medical publishers, including Blackwell Publishing, McGraw-Hill and Elsevier Science.
