  • Expertise Area:ASUK Trustee and Chair
  • Phone:ASUK Office 07970 071675

I have worked within the NHS for many years, and now work as a Practice Manager at a medical centre in Devon. This involves the day to day running of our practice to provide patient care and planning future service developments.


I hope to bring my knowledge of healthcare, NHS systems and my drive to support charities to my role as an ASUK Trustee.


I continue to work in a variety of voluntary roles for local charities; volunteer dog walker for the Cinnamon Trust (for 20 years) and I volunteer at a local North Devon animal charity (for 5 years) where I help to care for stray, ill or unwanted pets prior to rehoming. I am also the Chair of the Board of Trustees for the North Devon Hospice (having been a Trustee for 3 years).


I enjoy travelling and have been fortunate enough to travel the world over the last 30 years – and I continue to do so. You will often find me walking the great outdoors as I am lucky enough to live close to moors and coastal paths.
