What is your role within the community?

I have been the Operations Manager at Epilepsy Outlook for 18 years. – My role includes providing advice and support to those with epilepsy and to raise awareness of the condition in the community. I am a board member of Hartlepool Carers.  I am treasurer of Hartlepool Voluntary Development Agency and an active volunteer for Friends of Ward Jackson Park.

Why did you want to become a Community Health Ambassador?

I think it’s a great opportunity for me to share the views and experiences of those with a long term medical condition such as epilepsy.

What is your favourite quote/saying or motto in life?

“Whoever said ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ never had a dog.”
