I have been a Trustee at Choice Support since March 2019 and I am humbled and privileged to be in this role. As an information technology professional, I obtained a Master’s degree in information technology, completing a dissertation on information security. I have worked for various organisations, both in the public and private sectors operating at executive level as a chief information officer, providing strategic digital direction and transformation in support of an organisation’s overall strategic objectives.
I am a parent with lived experience, who has a son born with a disability that falls under the learning disability spectrum. I became a Trustee of Choice Support for a number of reasons. The organisation’s values, with specific reference to the people we support, always put people at the forefront of what we do. The services offered and provided to a diverse group of people are some of the best on offer. But most importantly, I have always been passionate about everyone having the right to live a life of their choice, with dignity. I believe being part of Choice Support will provide the opportunity to do so.
I hope to add value and make a difference to ensure a better life for all the people we support by applying both my lived experience and professional expertise.
