We would like to extend a very warm welcome to our newest Trustee, Clare Joy.
Clare has lived with a hypermobility syndrome and POTS for many years before becoming a spontaneous leaker in October 2015. Along her leak journey she has also developed migraine and trigeminal neuralgia, and continues to suffer daily leak symptoms despite blood patches and surgery - although thankfully not to the same extent or intensity. She has decided to focus on what she can do now, that she couldn't do whilst flat. She is grateful for the opportunity to advocate for those of us who so often feel isolated and voiceless. She hopes to use her skills developed in her career to further the charity's aims.
Clare is a clinical scientist working in Medical Physics in the NHS. She lives in Southampton with her husband and loves to be distracted by all things craft and sewing related.
We are all very excited to have Clare on board!
