I am an experienced fundraising and marketing leader, having worked in the not-for-profit sector for over 20 years – most recently with the MS Trust as director of fundraising and marketing. This role has given me an excellent insight into the fundraising environment relating to MS and has enabled me to develop strategies for delivering sustainable income growth and increasing awareness of the services the Trust provides. I have previously served as a trustee for the Swan Youth Project and I greatly enjoy using my knowledge and insight to help others achieve success.
I will be working with the fundraising team at the Centre looking at our future strategies. Having had first-hand experience of a loved one being diagnosed with MS, I can vividly recall the profound sense of dislocation and worry for the future a diagnosis gives. This unpredictable condition and its perverse complexities still resonate strongly with me and I share the Centre’s commitment to making a beneficial difference for people living with MS.
