Caroline is Clerk/Chair of trustees.
Formally a social worker, training manager, and university lecturer, Caroline has most recently worked as a professional psychologist specialising in coaching, facilitation and group work. Her strengths-based approach aimed to help others create more positive, meaningful, and happier lives. This has been the focus of her work within different sectors, and in a variety of roles. Her focus now is on Quaker work.
Caroline was born in Pakistan, somewhere she still considers her 'emotional home', and has undertaken voluntary work there with headteachers and in a non-governmental organisation. And when working in Azerbaijan as a psychologist, she volunteered in a refugee centre and learned much from those there, making life-long friends in the process.
Caroline enjoys combining a number of roles with the joy of being a grandparent. She is a member of Norfolk and Waveney Area Meeting and her local meeting is Beccles in Suffolk.
Caroline has a strong commitment to social justice. Taking part in developing and supporting an innovative, responsive, and effective organisation that lives Quaker values in addressing the needs of those it touches, are some of the reasons Caroline has been led to serve QSA.
