Vikki Shinn
Project Manager

Vikki has a diverse background in change and project management, including operational, strategic and service planning; with experience of delivering service and construction based changes in both healthcare and education environments. Drawing on a background of business and project management and estates and construction experience, Vikki has completed projects ranging in scope from South West regional service changes to development and delivery of new medical and educational facilities - from Intensive Care and Theatre Facilities to accommodation for Art, Science, I.T. and General Teaching.

After an intensive period as an operational service manager for a busy hospital Vikki elected to set aside her on-call pager and pick up her high-vis, hard hat and site boots and get back to her project management roots. A move to Somerset provided the perfect opportunity, and she joined the team at Futures for Somerset in August 2016.   


​Vikki is currently managing a number of projects across Somerset, including a mixture of refurbishments, extensions and new builds.

Outside of work, Vikki enjoys having a project (or two) on the go and if not being hands on with the tools or the paint at home can often be found trying her hand at other things from wood work and glass blowing to pottery or gardening. As a self- confessed food lover and keen cook Vikki also spends time hiking, cycling or skiing – as a way to justify the appetite and get out in the fresh air, preferably accompanied by a good view.
