I love to work with people who make a difference and the Development Trust has given me the chance to meet the people, businesses, community workers, entrepreneurs, doers and makers all making a difference to this town. I spent 25 years working with teenagers and families in the public and charity sector, and I’ve also run two businesses. I completed a Masters in Peacebuilding in 2016 and spent time in the West Bank as a human rights monitor. My first community project was the Weymouth Peace Garden on the Nothe. I am a member of the School of Social Entrepreneurs, Locality and currently taking part in a Power to Change Community Business Programme.
