I have been self-employed in the retail sector all my business life, (now retired). I was one of the original founding members of Shandon Therapy Centre, now EDCC. I became involved in the area when my daughter presented with ED, and our family supported her along the journey to recovery. As my interest in ED grew I eventually became a member of the Board of Management.
