In 2023, I was appointed UK Director of Business Transformation & Site Leader at General Dynamics Land Systems UK Ltd. I’m at the forefront of short-term operational delivery while advancing long-term strategic goals around streamlining quality improvement and cost savings.
I’m able to seamlessly switch between an operational, tactical, and strategic focus as required. My dexterity in identifying and addressing areas of underperformance has been key to my success. I thrive in a fast-paced, executive leadership role with large P&L accountability and significant strategic influence.
My strong communication skills position me strongly to federate a broad, complex stakeholder network. With a hands-on, engaging, and inspiring management style, I get the very best from large teams of staff. As a qualified coach, I’m able to maximise the performance and potential of all. I excel at getting things done by delivering clarity of direction while promoting ownership and accountability.

Katie Roberts. I am 23 years of age from Pontypridd in South Wales. I am just coming to the end of my Psychology and Counselling BSc at the University of South Wales. I am about to undergo training as a counsellor. I have recently completed training as a coach and mentor. I have experience in support work. My main interests are improving mental health and well-being across a range of communities.
In 2005 I began a senior teaching position at a Welsh medium school. It was here I had the privilege of teaching a very special group of children. Through their innocent honesty, they facilitated a journey of self-reflection. I have been honoured and privileged to work with many wellbeing practitioners who have been key to my personal journey, many of which are part of R2C’s work today. They supported me in developing tools to overcome the impact of separation and grief and in creating new structures to move forward positively. This very personal experience helped me fully understand and appreciate the importance of wellbeing on behaviour, achievement, and happiness. Experiencing the importance of this first hand, wellbeing became my focus and priority in every classroom, childcare setting, and training room I have delivered in since, as well as with my own children and family. I am so very excited to be a part of Remember 2 Care and supporting others in their own journeys.
From logical, methodical accounting to spiritual healing
Born and bred in the Rhondda Valleys. I am married with two beautiful girls and a qualified accountant. I liked the fact that with accounts there is a right and a wrong answer, everything can be reconciled and proved. However, when my Dad passed away some 15 years ago, I couldn’t let go. I so desperately wanted to have another chat with him and I started to delve into spirituality. I stumbled across Reiki, had lots of sessions and found it to be very relaxing. I then decided to learn about Reiki and qualified as a Reiki Master in 2014 and then took a course in Integrated Energy Therapy and am now a Master Instructor.
I love people and helping them grow.
As cheesy as it sounds, I’m a true people person and I’m often told that I don’t seem very HR-y. Through my diagnosis of MS I became obsessed with the mind-body connection and began my education in personal and professional coaching.
I learned more about how our thoughts and feelings impact our lives and how to implement changes on an unconscious level.
Today, I’m a coach, speaker, and successful entrepreneur. I run a multi award winning HR Consultancy, Healthy HR and I enjoy working the land of my smallholding and living a conscious, sustainable life.
I am proud to sit on the tribunal for employment claims in England and Wales.
My dream is to create cultures where the wellbeing of employee’s is an unspoken expectation within companies and to proactively support the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of our client’s team.
