"I am a freelance writer and editor, with a long background in legal and business publishing. Since becoming freelance, I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with several charities. Mental health, especially that of young people, is an area close to my heart – with two young children, I’m very conscious of how different the world is for them and the pressures they are bombarded with. Like any parent, my greatest desire is for them to be happy. OLLIE does amazing work and I’m proud to support them using my skills and my passion for a world where people can talk comfortably about their mental wellbeing and young people aren’t afraid to ask for help through those inevitable tough times."
"I am a Chartered Accountant who specialises in advising owner managed entities on a complete range of commercial and financial matters. I have two children and see on daily basis the pressures that young people are faced with. I have become a Trustee as I want to use my experience to assist The OLLIE Foundation with the fantastic work it is doing"

Since TJ died my world has become an emptier place. I have changed forever & life has lost its lustre. I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone. If I can do anything to stop others experiencing this then that’s what I must do.
