I joined the board of Carr Gomm in November 2015.

With a background in personal financial matters, my role on the board extends to also being on the Finance Committee.

My role at Carr Gomm is very different to my day job. I admire the team that I am working with for their dedication to delivering high quality support with a desire to give people requiring that support choices, and to take control of their own lives within the community.

As a provider of accommodation for people supported by Carr Gomm, I became interested in the organisation and the style of delivery of a much-needed service.

When I was asked to join the board at the time of moving away from a demanding full time job, I did not hesitate.

Outside of working hours, I am a dedicated supporter of Spartans FC and hate to miss a match.
