Sharon was brought up in Dorset and has spent most of her working life in the education sector. She initially worked as a marine geochemist at Southampton University but moved in to academic administration in 2000. She came to Cumbria in 2002 to work at St Martin’s College (now the University of Cumbria) where her career developed into Enterprise and Outreach work primarily with European-funded projects aimed at supporting local small-to-medium sized enterprises.
After taking a ‘gap year for grown-ups’ she joined CfLP in 2012 initially working on the operational and programme management of supplied-in services. Her work then developed into finances and general project management and, most recently, she has focussed in solely on the finance needs of the business.
“I am a strong believer in opportunity through education and training and during the years that I have worked at CfLP I have seen many examples of this. I am thrilled to be continuing my work at CfLP by focussing on the financial areas of the business, which I love. It is great to be part of a high quality service being delivered in Cumbria, offering unique facilitative, inspirational and empowering events and programmes that make a real difference.”
