HELEN PERNELET

I am a qualified non-practicing solicitor with a career that has also spanned investment banking.  

I have extensive experience as a charity trustee, including as the chair of the Epilepsy Society and The Meath Epilepsy Charity, and I have experienced epilepsy in my own family.

 

 I understand and empathise with the huge challenges faced by children with epilepsy, and by their families who can easily feel overwhelmed and anxious as they try to navigate unclear care pathways. Lack of support and information are two key issues facing families, and HOPE is doing an incredible job responding to this. I am so impressed by the agility of this small charity, and hope to assist them to support more children and their families
