Muse heads March 316 Edit

A bit about me

My husband and I help in our local church. Community is important to us, plus it’s great to have lots of friends locally to call on if needed. I like to be active whenever I have some free time and preferably out in nature, so you'll usually find me walking, wild-swimming or sitting and breathing outside. I’ve also been on a lifelong quest to become a wine connoisseur but require much more practice.


I am a Director at Muse responsible for our outsourced Trustee Executive Support Services team. I also act as outsourced Pensions Director for high profile schemes requiring senior industry experience. I also oversee the relationships for our key executive support clients.

I’ve been managing pension funds for over 25 years, mainly running in-house pensions teams prior to joining Muse. I bring a lot of practical experience of how to run a pension fund well and get things done. Most of my in-house roles have involved dual aspects; being both Head of Pensions/ Pensions Manager for the sponsoring employer but also Secretary to the Trustee Board.

Most recently that was as the Head of Pensions & Benefits for Rexam PLC (a FTSE 100 company acquired by a US competitor, Ball Corporation) and previous pensions management roles in-house for Fujitsu Services and Société Générale Corporate & Investment Bank.

I work best by building good relationships; so enjoy creating teams where everyone understands the pension scheme’s strategic objectives as well as the plan for getting there – which really helps Trustee Boards measure success.
