Lisa Means Business!

We’re delighted to announce that Lisa Watkins, our Lead Specialist Occupational Health Nurse Practitioner (pictured left), was awarded Highly Commended for the Women In Front Line Services category at this year’s Sutton Women Mean Business Awards.

The awards celebrate inspirational women in the London Borough of Sutton for a number of categories including Business Woman of the Year; Contribution to the Community; Women in Education, Skills and Training; Women in STEM; and the award Lisa came runner-up for, Women in Front Line Services.

The nomination process included written applications and face-to-face interviews, after which  the lead judge said to Lisa “I have been feeling a little down recently and you’ve really cheered me up, thank you, I wish I knew someone like you!”

Lisa is an inspiration to us all at OHC&AT; she tirelessly dedicates herself to those around her and wants to improve the lives of our students. We are so proud to have her as part of the team, and wish her a huge congratulations for this momentous achievement.
