I arrived in Liverpool in the early 1990s, after working in legal practices in the Midlands, having gained a Master’s Degree in Criminology from Keele University.
I volunteered at the Citizens Advice office in Speke before joining the Toxteth office as deputy manager. I worked at the Toxteth office for five years before joining National Citizens Advice, as a development officer, where I quickly became involved in the early development of IT systems.
Over the next twenty years, I would become involved in the development of case management and information systems that are largely in use today. After taking voluntary redundancy from National Citizens Advice, I worked for a short while as an IT consultant before retiring and joining the Citizens Advice Liverpool Board of Trustees.
I do some voluntary work in a local park on the Wirral, and enjoy the Lake District and walking.
