A bit of info!

I live in York and have been volunteering for trans charities and organisations for many years.


Although I've enjoyed a career as a Director and worked in Property Management and Retail for the last 25 years my passion is in the helping professions, specifically healthcare and support for the trans community. 


Family support with Mermaids

I joined the fabulous Mermaids family in 2012, volunteering at residentials, supporting families and children, attending events across the country and became a Trustee in 2015 (now retired).
