Tell us a little about yourself:

I was a caregiver for my mum who lived with Alzheimer’s disease in the final years of her life.  This was a transformative experience and set me on a path to working with organisations to ensure that my lived experience could be used for positive purposes.  I am passionate about all things related to dementia research and, after completing my MSc Dementia Studies course, hope to pursue my own dreams of becoming a researcher.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:

I am a keen, but very amateur gymnast and can often be seen upside down practising various gravity-defying skills!
