My professional background is research and HR, but my most important job is mum to my lovely son.

I am delighted to become a Trustee of Young Minds Matter, whose work with young people is so needed. I have been a volunteer mentor for adults with a national mental health charity for some years now, so am passionate about the value of mentoring, with all the rewards and challenges the role brings.

I am really excited to support YMM as the charity grows to reach as many young people as possible.

I live in leafy South West London, with my delightful son and my equally delightful Scotty dog.
