I have been actively involved with Shekinah for nearly 20 years and cherish its unchanging commitment to the disadvantaged of South Devon, whilst embracing change in almost every aspect of the delivery of its service. My background has been in commercial business and it has been a pleasure to bring the skills and principles of business into Shekinah’s management. I have also worked in the University of Plymouth and in Torbay Council, and organisations such as these constitute invaluable partners for Shekinah.

I have also chaired a medical charity and spent considerable time working in the slums of Nairobi. This certainly brings new meaning to the concept of disadvantaged people! I am a life-long Christian and hope to see Shekinah remain true to its roots in the Christian faith.
