Advocate 

As the authority on the representation of epilepsy in adventure, I speak at events, work with adventure sports providers and provide interviews. I have been described as 'a confident and engaging speaker', and as a media volunteer for Epilepsy Society and Epilepsy Action, I have spoken to outlets such as BBC radio London.
