SAYes Transition Mentoring


, Jul 04, 2023


Fiona is a Transition Specialist/UK Programmes with SAYes.

She joined in 2023 after volunteering as a mentor since 2020. After gaining a PhD in Film and Television Studies from the University of Warwick, she blended her passions for performing and the 1930s Hollywood musicals she studied as an undergraduate, forging a career singing jazz standards. Supplementing her musician’s income with work as a maths tutor, Fiona found she loved working one-on-one with young people, watching their confidence and abilities grow with sustained joint effort.

Fiona has a history of voluntary work and campaigning that aligns with her interests in sustainability and climate activism as well as tackling racial, gender, LGBTQIA+ and income inequality. She lived for some years in California but is now based back in the UK.
