A quick browse of Bauer's LinkedIn profile (yes, I took one for the team), reveals her first healthcare-based job was November 2016 (and that was as a patient governor).
Before that she'd had a range of short-lived jobs, mainly in marketing.
How do these people always end up with the plum jobs?
Oh, she went to Marlborough College (that's one of the top private schools in the country that will admit girls).
So basically, she's another Dido Harding.
