YOUR JOB?

I manage work issues related to homelessness, supply and demand in housing, and private sector enforcement and regulation. I am responsible for ensuring we are able to accommodate homeless people with council housing, housing associations or with private landlords.

DAY TO DAY?

I co-ordinate projects and have to make sure everyone on the team is meeting their individual targets, but in driving as hard as possible to get things done, it's important to empathise with where they are coming from.

ANYTHING ELSE?

I'm on the board of two housing organisations and am a mentor in Brent.

CAREER?

I was transferred from the Greater London Council to Lambeth LBC in 1982 and have since worked in housing for Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow LBCs. I came to Brent in 1992.

PERSONALLY?

I am divorced with four children aged from four and a half to 20. I have had two books published, Obeah and The wonderful adventures of the Margicans: one bad apple. For Black History Month I visited two Brent schools and read a bit of my books to the children. I enjoy playing football.

THE FUTURE?

I'm very ambitious. A medium-term goal is to become a chief executive and my other goals are under wraps.
