Natasha was appointed as Director of Finance & Operations in September 2021 having worked for the charity in admin support and finance roles since January 2019.
As a young child I was fortunate to be able to attend a Steiner Waldorf kindergarten. Following a move to London I then attended a state primary school until the age of 11 when a move to Gloucestershire enabled me once again to experience the Waldorf curriculum whilst attending Wynstones. Whilst these two differing provisions both brought me the joy of learning, my years at Wynstones were truly formative. They gave me the basis of something I have carried with me ever since, a strength and sense of balance that has helped me to always move forward, comfortable within myself.
I have worked with local and national enterprises and charities, and have extensive experience of developing business streams and management in all areas relating to operations, finance, marketing, and project delivery. Having taken a key role in developing a small start-up through its first years of trading, culminating in national distribution of their products, I then spent ten years as an owner-operator of a start-up business subsequently acquired by 3i Group.
My journey back to Wynstones came with the arrival of our three children, who also enjoyed their formative years there. The circle was complete when I joined as a staff member providing operational and business management.
