Kay joined Gosport Voluntary Action (GVA) in February 2022, bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to the GVA team and community. Prior to GVA, Kay was Operations Manager at the Association of Royal Navy Officers, following a career in leadership roles in the Royal Navy Medical Service.
Amongst the many strings to her bow, Kay spent 28 years in the Royal Navy and Queen Alexandra's Royal Naval Nursing Service (QARNNS), working as a nurse and a Medical Services Officer. Kay has worked across a wide variety of jobs in the UK and overseas, and in 2020, Kay was named as the inaugural Naval Servicewoman of the Year.

A compassionate and inclusive leader, Kay is a highly experienced specialist with a history of delivering medical operational capabilities in the Defence Medical Services. She left the Royal Navy in March 2021 to take up a position as the Operations Manager for The Association of Royal Navy Officers and Royal Navy Officers Charity, where she has developed a keen interest in the charity and community sector.
