Other information

Other information:

As chair of FMA UK I am responsible for ensuring that we set long term goals while ensuring that the day to day operations of the charity keep getting done. With my previous role of keeping the IT operations like the website and social media running properly, I am still involved with these and step in as required to help out.

I became a trustee in August 2008 after a short time of helping out as an advisor to the board. In this time, I have concentrated on promoting communication and using any methods available to increase awareness of fibromyalgia.

Personally, I run a small IT company that helps businesses with their technical requirements from websites to networking their computers. I also have the day to day challenge of dealing with my own fibro and try my best to achieve the best work life balance that I can. With my partner Fiona, I have a lovely son Lewis who often drives me to distraction

One of the positives that I have had from being involved with FMA UK is the opportunity to be there when people meet at a support group, or get that first bit of information that changes their life when they get that affirmation moment of not being alone and adrift with this chronic condition. We have had much more awareness in the time I have been involved but there is still much more work to be done.
