The National Liberal Club has always felt like my second home in London. I have really enjoyed engaging with all its activities but the biggest treasure of our Club is its members – they share my values of being diverse, open-minded, liberal, and thoughtful. They are the reason I joined this Club.
My career began as a pharmacist and I went on to manage various health food businesses. After having my second child, my focus shifted to helping my local community as a school trustee and an active, fund-raising member of the PTA.
I currently use positive psychology, in one-to-one and group coaching workshops, to train my clients in public speaking, with a focus on health and wellbeing.
My hobbies include reading, public speaking, gardening (including helping at my local allotment), running our local bookclub, and keeping fit with Tai Chi. (Marianna joined the Club in 2020 and was first elected to the Members’ Council in 2023 and again in 2024)
