I have been working in the voluntary sector since 1995 and was originally employed in 2003 with the ‘simple’ task of creating Carers Link. My task was to establish an organisation that provided a range of services for East Dunbartonshire’s carers in a flexible way that would suit a wide range of needs. Now, as CEO of Carers Link, it is an honour to lead an organisation where carers and caring remain at the heart of what we do. We have a great team of passionate staff and volunteers, all using our own experiences of caring to make a difference to others.
When I am not filling out funding applications, attending meetings or staring at financial spread-sheets, I enjoy classic rock music and hill-walking (just little hills as I’m scared of heights). I’m a genealogist at heart with family in East Dunbartonshire traced back to the 1600s.
