She was also responsible for establishing the Make Time 2 Play campaign and the sustainability committee, as well as working with Jerry Burnie on the toy safety campaign on online marketplaces. Most recently she has been instrumental in guiding BTHA members through the turbulence of Brexit and COVID with the wider team, representing member interest with all levels of government.
