What do you do at IUCSF?
I joined If U Care Share Foundation in 2018 after working in politics for many years.
I head up the Funding and Events Department of the charity, helping those who would like to raise funds for the charity and putting on wonderful events throughout the year.
I also work with businesses across the region who link up with If U Care Share Foundation to promote the work that we do and raise much needed funds for the charity.
Describe why you’re at IUCSF?
I have a real passion for the work of If U Care Share and I have seen the huge difference that we make. Having been affected myself I know how important it is to support those who have lost loved ones and help those who are at risk of taking their own life.
I know that every penny we raise really does change lives and saves lives.

What are some things that make you happy?
