I believe in fairness, respect, and equality for all. I have experience of working in a highly regulated corporate environment and understand the need to adhere to both external and internal regulations, having worked in the financial/banking sector for over 10 years.
I have an outgoing yet professional personality, enthusiasum and a willingness to learn and self-develop, I have been described as a responsible, caring, understanding, supportive and friendly person who is willing to help others achieve success, independence and confidence both in their professional and personal lives.
I have interests in public transport, theatre, cooking, walking and cycling.
I will bring all this and more to the position of trustee and Aniridia Network leadership team.
Emily Nash and Martin Flemming are both standing down as trustees this year. We are very thankful for everything they have done.
This means there will be two vacancies on the trustee board. They currently lead on finance, fundraising and volunteering. They will leave a bit gap so we badly need more people to volunteer either as a trustee or official. It’s a great opportunity to make a difference and learn new skills.
