Originally from the UK, I have been living in the States for over 20 years now. Long enough to pick up bad vocabulary, but not to lose the accent entirely. During my time in the States I have lived in California, Texas and Illinois. However, I am happy to have settled now in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. My family and I moved here about two years ago. My wife, Janet, and I expect to be here for some time. We have three children. The eldest two are now in college (in California and Pennsylvania, respectively) and the youngest is a senior in high school, in the midst of the college application season. I am less confident they will stay, but you never know.
Janet and I have become members of the Sewickley Presbyterian Church and it is through members of the church that I first came into contact with Samaritan Counselling. I was talked into participating in the Fabulous Cooks event! I guess that has now become an annual undertaking. That event gave me the opportunity to meet some of the wonderful people involved in Samaritan and that has been a great draw. However, it is the mission of Samaritan that makes me wish to get more involved. Mental health is a pressing issue everywhere, but especially among many of the underserved communities in our area. Poor mental health dramatically impacts the lives of those affected, but conversely treatment and support, of the sort offered by Samaritan, can help turn people’s lives around. Samaritan’s work has a profound impact on the lives of those it serves, and also on the families and communities where they live. This is an inspiring and impactful mission and one I would like to support.
I practiced as a lawyer for many years, both in the UK, Europe and the United States. I am still qualified as a solicitor in England and an attorney in the United States. While I am no longer practicing generally, though I take on work from time to time, I would hope that my experience as a lawyer, including pro bono work for a number of nonprofit organizations over the years, will be of assistance to Samaritan. I also hope to bring a dedication and enthusiasm to help Samaritan achieve its mission and help people to rest their lives. I like to work collaboratively and look forward to becoming a, hopefully valuable, member of the Samaritan team.
