Sharon joined the Friends of the Elderly Board of Trustees in April 2018.
Her passion for elderly and dementia care derived from personal family circumstances. Sharon was involved with Friends of the Elderly in a voluntary capacity as a committee member for several years before becoming a trustee and board member.
She qualified as a lawyer in 1999 before moving to the financial services industry in 2009, working for a high street bank for many years where she was involved in diverse and fascinating projects that enhanced her knowledge and skill set and gave her insight into how customers from SME businesses to large corporates operate, and an understanding of the media, political and regulatory landscape.
Sharon is now a consultant in reputational risk and crisis management.
Sharon sits on Friends of the Elderly’s Resources and Investment Committee.
