After a 30 year career in industry in general management and finance roles I have spent the last 12 years working and volunteering in the third sector. Much of that time has been spent in organisations focused on serving the homeless and disadvantaged across the UK but has also involved experience in development work in sub-Saharan Africa/Latin America and education in the UK. 


Having re-located to Devon at the end of 2013 I was keen to get involved with a  local organisation that has the heart and the capabilities to work with the homeless and disadvantaged in the South West and I was grateful when Shekinah asked me to join their board as a Trustee. In my brief time since then I have been deeply impressed by the commitment of the whole team at Shekinah and their strong bond with the people they serve.
