Helen joined WSP in 2020 and brings a wealth of experience to the projects she undertakes for WSP from her career in the public and private sector.

The early part of her career was in the hospitality sector where she worked in marketing and sales increasing profitable activity, developing innovative loyalty programmes and contract negotiations.  

Transferring to the public sector in 2000, Helen worked for NHS Estates and NHSU leading policy development and delivery for the NHS at national level.

Helen moved into NHS Management through a national initiative run by the then Modernisation Agency to bring experienced managers from other sectors into the NHS.  Since then she has held a number of Board Director positions with a variety  of NHS Trusts with responsibility for areas such as business development, business planning, strategy and communications.

Helen’s focus for WSP is stakeholder engagement and client delivery across NHS, local authority and third sector organisations.

Helen has a Masters in Health Service Studies from the University of Leeds.
