Juno Hollyhock, Chief ExecutiveEmail Juno Hollyhock
I started in May 2017 as the new CEO of Rose Road. I am enjoying getting to know the team and I am immensely impressed by the energy and commitment that I have seen, it really is a privilege to have joined you all. I am looking forward to continuing Rose Road's outstanding work, building on the incredible inspiration that Heather has brought to the Association.
My background is with a range of charities and local authorities always supporting the children and young people's agenda. My most recent role was with the Learning Through Landscapes charity where we worked to support as many children as possible in range of settings to experience the benefits of the natural environment in their learning and play, I hope to continue some elements of this in my new role. I remain chair of the Academy Council for a local secondary school.
