Before joining the team at WCFI she worked for The Oxford Trust and has seen the WCFI evolve from the original site, to a building site and finally to the wonderful new centre that it is now. Rosie jumped at the chance to work in the new WCFI and brings with her extensive customer relations and office management experience. In her spare time, she enjoys walking and cycling.

Over the last 10 years Graham created and ran a start-up Health Tech business across the UK and Sweden.
