WHAT DO YOU DO AT THE CHARITY?

I am the Society’s Corporate Partnership Manager. I work closely with our new and existing corporate partners, helping connect them with the Encephalitis Society as they directly support our events and other activities. I am responsible for strengthening, growing and diversifying our corporate partnerships so do get in touch if you and your organisation want to learn more!

WHY DO YOU LIKE WORKING HERE?

I think it would be hard to find a more rewarding purpose in work than working to raise awareness of, and provide support for the cause that we do. I also like a challenge, we’ve done so much to raise awareness about encephalitis but there is still so much to do – and I hope you or your organisation would be keen to work with us to achieve this!

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF?

I am a sports enthusiast playing table tennis locally in Malton, 6-a-side football across in York, and braving an occasional weekend park run. In 2018 I ran the York Marathon raising money for MIND, and that year was awarded the University of York’s Sportsman of the Year. I’m a big Chesterfield FC fan occasionally taking their most loyal supporter, my 80 year old grandma, to a game.

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THE ENCEPHALITIS SOCIETY MAKE IN YOUR OPINION?

 Above all, we are a vital support network for those suffering from Encephalitis ensuring those affected directly and indirectly have somewhere and someone to turn too. It is exciting to be a small part of the Society’s commitment to raising awareness, influencing research and championing the stories of those affected by encephalitis.
