As a member of the Institute of Directors Committee I have an ongoing interest and activism in governance.  Having served as Chair of School and Not for Profit organisations, I also have the honour of gaining a one year placement on the board of Hamilton Airport through the Aspiring Directors Award.  My day to day role at Crombie Lockwood provides a great foundation on which to provide good governance given I am in the risk business.

I joined the Board of Trustees in October 2009. As a chartered accountant with 40 years experience and also a Te Awamutu resident, I was keen to bring my business skills to Enrich+.  It is an organisation I hold very highly and I felt that I could learn from the staff and clients of Enrich+.  I enjoy attending board meetings, listening to what is happening within the organisation and finding ways to make a difference.
