Most of my working life has been taken up within the role of finance for both businesses and private practice. During this time, I also had a family and now have grandchildren.
I have been involved in furthering and supporting the interests of young people throughout that time, as in my spare time I qualified as a youth worker and instructor for the Duke of Edinburgh Award and Youth Achievement Award. I ran the Open Award Unit for North Yorkshire County Council based at Harrogate College for some years, only leaving when I moved from the area to South Yorkshire and could not continue to travel.
I believe strongly in the empowerment of young people, regardless of perceived inequality, and look forward to being involved with the Trust and assisting others with the same passion of supporting people to achieve their best.
