The team keeps growing! We’re expanding even further, as we’ve now taken on a Research officer. We’re pleased to introduce Suzanne Glover from Northern Ireland, as the newest member of the Pathfinders staff team! Suzanne is currently a PhD student at Ulster University and is recently married.
Here’s a bit more about Suzanne in here own words.
“My name is Suzanne and I am the newly appointed research officer for Pathfinders Neuromuscular Alliance. I am 28 years old and from County Down, Northern Ireland. I’ve recently submitted my PhD thesis examining resilience and emotional intelligence in those who provide care for someone with DMD. I absolutely loved my PhD experience and I can’t wait to continue researching with Pathfinders.
I have a neuromuscular condition known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type II. I live with my almost husband (3 months to go!) Colin, and our much loved Greyhound, Peggy. I would have described my hobbies outside of PhD research as drinking a lot of Starbucks with friends and continuous cleaning of muddy wheelchair tyres from adventures with Colin and Peggy. In more recent days it’s been a cuppa with friends over zoom and getting our adventure kicks from Netflix (that’s one way to keep the wheelchair tyres clean for the wedding!).”
Please give our newest addition to the Pathfinders crew a very warm welcome!
