I am an accountant with a long career working in both the public and private sectors. Since moving to Worthing from Hertfordshire in 2005 I have been involved in tackling the financial challenges faced by the NHS, both in London and locally.

I bring previous trustee experience having been the Honorary Treasurer of a local Mencap Society in Hertfordshire for over 30 years and a trustee for UK Skills and Chair of its Audit Committee. Now I have time to spare I wish to make a contribution to my local community.

As a family carer for a grown up daughter who is facing the challenges of living independently in the community, I feel I am able to bring understanding and empathy as well as professional experience to my role as a trustee.
