With a career that spans NHS and voluntary sector management, Kim became HENRY’s Chief Executive in April 2012. A parent of three herself, Kim is passionate about helping children to have the best start in life. She has a professional background in parenting, family support and early development.
She is the author of Early Learning Matters, a good practice guide, commissioned by the Department for Children, Schools and Families in 2009 and co-author with Professor Mary Rudolf of A Healthy Start; a best practice handbook for health and early years practitioners. Kim’s mission is to transform traditional approaches to obesity and respond to the strategic need for prevention. “We know that, once established, obesity is notoriously difficult to turn around in the long term. Getting alongside families right from the start and helping them embed healthy lifestyle choices before excess weight gain is established is crucial.” She is a regular speaker at health and early years events and contributor to radio, TV and print media.
