Dee´s career began in the NHS, she went on to study law, working in the field of medical negligence before taking up academic roles and leading major public sector reforms for the Welsh Government. As an invited Fellow to the Royal Society of Arts, Commerce and Manufacturing (RSA), she became Councillor for Wales, and led the Fellowship throughout the first two years of the pandemic, bringing people together again safely for the RSA’s international conference in 2022. Dee is fascinated by our own human microsystems, how we respond to and have abilities to grow from stressful experiences, and how stressful experiences can impact on the quality of service that is offered. She is Director of gray’s Wellbeing, through which she gets to do some wonderful things, the latest of which is the ’Catch Up , a series of bespoke hosted conversational spaces for people who talk about and find solutions to stress. I am part of a collaborative team of Allied Researchers to the Welsh Government, I write a bit too and have various studies published. I am also honoured to be Managing Director of the Young Carers Academy CiC, this is a not for profit organisation that co-produces learning opportunities with young carers in Wales, UK.
When Dee is not working she practices what she preaches about stress management, and goes for mountain walks (get out of breath but love it), swim in the local lakes and sea (bob about mostly and grin), ride my bicycle (wobble about a lot), and draw (badly).
