Meet our new Operations Manager


Reverse Rett: small team, big job. Meet the new Operations Manager who will help us move forward to meet the challenges ahead full throttle.

After a thorough recruitment process which took several months and many layers of due diligence, we are delighted to share that Catherine Sim has taken the role of Operations Manager at Reverse Rett.

Catherine is no stranger to Reverse Rett, having been involved in fundraising and volunteering since the organisation was founded in 2010. Whilst the standard of applicants was extremely high, Catherine’s operational experience combined with two decades of operations experience and team building acumen made her the stand out candidate for the role. Catherine also has a daughter, 27 year old Georgina who has Rett Syndrome.

I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Operations Manager at Reverse Rett.

I have been involved with Reverse Rett from the beginning in 2010 and have participated in quite a few challenges over the past 13 years and volunteered at the London Gala many times.

My daughter, Georgina, is twenty-seven and has Rett Syndrome. Having the opportunity to play even a small part in bringing disease modifying treatment to her and all the people living with Rett Syndrome is a dream come true and one I will be immensely proud of.

I have 20+ years of organisational skills that I’m bringing to this role, managing multiple projects for different stakeholders, producing reports with tight deadlines while keeping a can-do positive attitude.

I have excellent team leading skills, resulting in my colleagues being confident in bringing issues to me for assistance in finding resolutions to complex situations. I bring an open, kind balance approach to being a leader, I enjoy building strong positive relationships as I believe this brings out the best in people.

I am thrilled to be joining what is already a strong team, albeit small and working together to make the ultimate difference for our children, young people and adults with Rett Syndrome.

– Catherine Sim, Operations Manager at Reverse Rett
