Horses are not in my background but when my niece was bitten by the bug in her teens, I easily fell into the role of unpaid groom and supporter. I now consider myself to be competent and have achieved gold star status in gopherism.

My career was spent as a PA, mainly within the local council. Administration is my forte and I take great pride in developing efficient working practices. Now retired, I am free to give my time and these skills to the charity.

I have been involved in charity work for over a decade and have volunteered extensively too.

Part of this time was spent working for the British Horse Society in the North Region office.

I am very proud to be a founding trustee for Here4Horses and look forward to working alongside this very talented and dynamic team.
