Katie Jones SWC Institute of Coding Executive Officer
Staff Wellbeing Champion
I have worked for the University for 18 months, I am an Executive Officer in the Institute of Coding.
I firmly believe that it’s important to raise awareness about health and wellbeing to reduce stigma, encourage more open conversations and help more people, regardless of their role at the university, get access to the support that they need. The Wellbeing Champions are a group of people that show kindness and compassion in their conversations, committed to making a difference, we are a listening ear and can signpost and suggest support.
Outside of work I can mostly be found running either parkrun on a Saturday or trail running at other times. I am currently training and fundraising for my first ultra, 100km, trail run in June 2021 for which I am fundraising for MND Association UK. Other relaxation activities include road cycling as part of Frome Ladies Cycling Club, hiking, reading and baking. I am also a fundraiser for the RAF Association.
