Wendy Davies first became involved with Get A-Head as a patient when she was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2009.
Charity co-founder and fellow trustee, John Watkinson, was her consultant and through the charity she received some complementary therapy in the form of acupuncture and counselling to aid her recovery.
Grateful for the ongoing support of both John and the charity, Wendy, who has since made a full and healthy recovery from the cancer, was keen to maintain her links with Get A-Head. Therefore, when a position arose for a finance trustee to join the board in 2013, Wendy jumped at the opportunity.
Having worked in corporate finance since graduating from university, Wendy’s professional skills and experience has helped guide the charity enormously.
Outside of Get A-Head, she holds the position of corporate partner at CK Chartered Accountants in Dudley.
