Who am I?
I have served as a Commando Pilot in HM Forces for 19 years and now, after 10 years in the city in Finance, am Senior Advisor to a multi family office. I also advise national charities on governance, structure and fundraising. When I have time I also fly a helicopter for a well known Rock Star!
What do I do?
Having being deployed on pretty much every military operation since the Falklands, I have seen and experienced the trauma of mental health issues. I am a champion for the recognition and treatment of mental health for all armed forces personnel and their families. I very much see my role as spreading the word of how the work of the OMC can make a material difference to peoples lives in all fields, but with focus on the military context. Further, I see my experience through fundraising and helping to define strategy in major charities as an aide to the future of the organisation. I am a Trustee of the Murray Parish Trust.
Why do I love working at the OMC?
The OMC is an organisation that can and does make a difference. My fellow Trustees and the staff are amongst the best practitioners and trainers in the business and together we will make a huge difference around the stigma of mental health through mindfulness.
