I have worked for charities for over 25 years, after completing my studies in Theology. Most of my work has been with people who are homeless and I have managed a number of hostels. I joined The Barons Court Project in 2014 and really enjoy my work leading the community here, it's a great privilege. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, meeting up with friends, occasionally cooking and love an evening out with Karaoke.
I have worked in the mental health and homelessness sector for over 10 years and I bring a wealth of experience to my role. I enjoy advising and mentoring people to pass on my experience. I co-ordinate the volunteers at the project who bring their own passion, skills and talents to the community. My main passion is listening to and playing music and have greatly enjoyed discussing this with the service users who are into music and playing it themselves.
Having recently moved to London from Jersey I look forward to meeting and working with service users in both one to one sessions and group work. After graduating with a degree in Psychology over the years i have worked within the mental health and more recently homelessness sector. I am very pleased to now be working at BCP who do fantastic work supporting service users. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, films and visiting new places.
Before I joined Barons Court Project in March 2017, I have over 10 years' experience in various business sectors including
education, fashion, retail, wholesale and hospitality industries, but never in a non-profit organisation.
It is a fantastic opportunity for me to work at BCP. This is because it provides me not only to gain valuable new work experience but also to make an invaluable contribution to help people in need. Here I meet with a great team of individuals who are working as a team to provide a great support to our service users. I am very grateful to be part of this. I really enjoy the friendly and supportive working environment here.
When I am not working, I spend time with my family, hanging out with friends and I travel whenever I get the chance.
I’ve been a Hammersmith resident since the first day I came to London from my native Northern Ireland over 20 years ago, and to see first-hand the real difference the talented and committed team here in at The Barons Court Project make to many deserving people from our local community is both humbling and inspiring.
I have fifteen years’ experience in senior executive legal and compliance roles with different global businesses and, together with my fellow Trustees, it’s a real privilege to be able to use our skills, experience and external viewpoint to help support and guide Michael and his team in their vital work for everyone who visits the Project. It is a responsibility that we don’t take lightly, especially as the pressures our service users face continue to grow in these challenging economic and political times. But it is a responsibility that we all immensely enjoy and are proud to have been given. I spend the rest of my time on surfboards, in theatres, on golf courses, or walking, especially back home in “Norn Iron”.

following a degree and a masters in Evolutionary Psychology, I moved into a career in communications and have spent the last 12 years working as a Brand Strategist. I am passionate about the power of strategic brand thinking to move organisations forwards to great success and have done this successfully for a wealth of businesses, government organisations and charities.

My first professional role after graduating from Liverpool University in 1995 was working with vulnerable people who were experiencing a multitude of physical, mental and social care issues. I continued on this career path and now have over 25 years working in this sector. I have a passion and commitment for social justice and strive to improve the lives of vulnerable people, improving outcomes and reducing inequalities in our society.
I have spent many years working in the third sector initially as a practitioner then moving onto senior management roles. I now have a joint role as Assistant Director working for Camden Clinical Commissioning Group and Camden Borough Council commissioning services for people with mental health, learning disabilities and homelessness. I am honoured to have joined the board of Trustees here at Barons Court and hope to support the project in making a real difference to local residents.
