I am Staffordshire bred but not born – having moved to the county when I was 1 year old. Apart from university and law school I have lived here ever since.
I am qualified solicitor and was previously a partner and managing partner in Grindeys solicitors in Stoke. I retired some 15 years ago.
I am currently a part time judge specialising in tax tribunals – my husband is also a High Court Judge.
I came to know Katharine House Hospice when I retired from work and didn’t know what to do with my time.
I brought some books and various other items to donate to hospice and was subsequently recruited as a volunteer by the volunteer coordinator.
I initially volunteered on the hospice reception before becoming a trustee.
I am currently a member of the Nomination and Governance Committee and also sit on the Staffing Committee.
