Reanna leads the Centre’s programme of work developing products and services aimed at improving how local authorities and trusts use evidence to improve their work with children and families.
Reanna has worked across the public, private and voluntary sectors to improve the performance and design of human-centred products and services. Prior to her role at Nesta, Reanna formed mutually-beneficial partnerships and designed/delivered interventions which were personalised, preventative and collaborative to support those most vulnerable. She has worked closely with looked-after children and frontline teams to develop tools and frameworks to encourage and aid progression. Reanna is passionate about encouraging evidence-informed practice and demonstrating its usefulness.
Reanna has an MA in Political Philosophy from Kings College and she recently completed a postgraduate course in Social Innovation.
Outside of work she spends much of her time nursing her rescue cat, Arthur. She enjoys dancing, getting creative (holds art workshops with people impacted by disabilities) and the odd red wine!
