I’m a survivor. Life has been about overcoming disasters and discovering new opportunities.

In my mid-20s, my fiancé of six years was killed in a car crash. I had to pick myself up and find a new direction. The Royal Navy was the answer for a superb career of over 20 years: one of eight women Commanders, first woman naval barrister, international travel and making changes to the lives of thousands. Just fabulous until I lost my sight.

Blindness ended my military ambitions. Time to re-group and find new fulfilment in the civilian world. Unashamedly optimistic, I created Disability Dynamics to help other disabled people to get back to work.
