Dr Stacey Munro
Stacey graduated medicine from the University of Glasgow in 1989 and after several years working in general practice in Scotland moved to Hampshire in 1998. She has been involved in medical education as a GP trainer since 2001 and currently works part time as a GP Principal in a large urban practice. Her interest in adults with ASD first developed when she worked as a GP in a hostel for the homeless, and this work, as well as an interest in mental health in general, prompted her to study for a psychology degree which was completed in 2010. Soon after she became involved with ADRC, following a patient through the assessment process and making several visits to the organisation
Mr Peter Jones
Peter became a Trustee in March 2014.
Stephanie was diagnosed at ADRC in 2010. As an adult on the spectrum, she has first-hand experience of the challenges those with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder can face in their day to day lives, as well as the process and benefits of obtaining a diagnosis. The insight Stephanie gained from her diagnosis, and the support she was subsequently able to access, enabled her to continue her studies in higher education. Stephanie is currently reading for a degree in Natural Sciences, specializing in Physics, and hopes to read for a Masters after she graduates. Stephanie is pleased that, as a Trustee, she is able to offer her perspective and experiences to the ADRC.
