I was introduced to MDS and Sophie through a mutual friend.
When I met the MDS trustees and committee, it was very clear how passionate they are about the organisation.
The advice and support given to patients and families is invaluable.
For many years I have worked in office management/PA roles and for the past 8 years was a Clinic Manager.
My role at MDS UK is very fulfilling, helping the charity to organise the patient support groups, deal with memberships and with further training I will hopefully become as knowledgeable as Sophie when it comes to advising patients of the support and care they can receive.
I have two young daughters who I adore which is why I decided that if I was going to work each day then I must feel both passionate and excited about the role. Showing my daughters the importance of working hard but enjoying your job is extremely important.
