I have worked with EASO since 2005 and have been the Executive Director since 2007.  I am responsible for the development and implementation of EASO’s strategic action plans and coordinates the activities of the Association’s General Council, Executive Committee, Task Forces and Working Groups.  I manage EASO’s annual congress (the European Congress on Obesity), its network of Collaborating Centres for Obesity Management (COMs) and its research projects.  I am the Dissemination WP leader in three current EU Projects: NoHoW, PROTEIN and SWEET (all H2020), and participated in DORIAN, SPOTLIGHT and MooDFOOD (FP7). I hold a BA (hons) in European Business and a Masters in Business Tourism.
