HR and Volunteer Lead

Your role/title at Apart of Me:

I am the HR and Volunteer Lead

How are you involved with Apart of Me?

I joined the team shortly after losing my mother and felt real empathy for those much younger than me feeling that loss and being less equipped to cope. I have loved working with the amazing team of volunteers and have been constantly astounded at the level of commitment so many volunteers have, and the incredible talent, skill, and understanding of those who have reached out to us to help.

Is there someone or something that you love that isn’t here anymore?

Both my parents as I mentioned above, but also a close friend who died at 49 leaving my very best friend a widow with 4 children. He completed our four and we all miss his sense of humour, positivity, and guidance.

What is guaranteed to make you laugh?

My dopey cocker spaniel!

List some silly facts about you:

I am told I have the curliest hair some people have ever seen! I am obsessed with playing tennis and bridge (not at the same time!) but have so far to come in both…

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

My mother always told me that I should always do what I can when I can, and to have no regrets…
