We're delighted to introduce our newest Trustee, Tamsin Trevarthen, who joined the Board earlier this month.
Tamsin developed a spontaneous spinal CSF Leak in January 2011, six months after landing her dream job which had involved relocating to Ireland. Awareness of CSF leaks in Ireland was extremely limited which meant that the path to diagnosis was fraught with difficulty, resulting in both diagnosis and treatment in the UK. After multiple blood patches and a VP shunt Tamsin’s leak is now managed although she has developed chronic migraine along the way. Tamsin’s professional background is in Human Resources and she hopes to apply that knowledge combined with her enthusiasm for providing other leakers with the support that she missed in her journey, in supporting the Association in their future endeavours.
Welcome aboard, Tamsin!
