Marie joined DHI in May 2022 as Programme Manager for the Rural Centre of Excellence, one of eight projects within the Moray Growth Deal.
Based in Moray, she has worked for the last 32 years as an Occupational Therapist across Social Care and mental health, with service development responsibility for an Independent Living Centre, and a Technology Enabled Care Programme. She brings a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the challenges facing clinicians and citizens within health and care services in a rural community. She is passionate about the difference digital technology can make to both the sustainability of services and health and wellbeing outcomes for citizens and the importance of getting those right through engaging with the community to identify problems and opportunities and working together to co-design person centred solutions.
Marie is excited at the innovative and transformational opportunities the Moray Growth Deal brings to her own community, and the chance to put Moray on the map as an internationally recognised centre for digital health and care innovation which contributes to the region’s economic sustainability and growth.
