Jema Davis (Secretary) spent several years working with student unions before moving into work in international development. She has been a long-time admirer of ASN, a host since 2011, and is happy to be able to put her previous experience dealing with the requirements of the Charity Commission and excellent organisational skills to good use as Secretary for ASN.

 

Katy Clough (Treasurer) is a qualified Chartered Accountant who used to work in taxation and finance but gave it up to become a researcher in theoretical physics. She now uses her accountancy powers for good rather than evil, formerly as the volunteer bookkeeper for ASN, and now as Treasurer.

 

Caoileann Appleby is a Dubliner living in England. She’s also a professional nonprofit fundraiser dedicated to using her skills and experience to ensure ASN can continue to grow and do what we do best: raise more money, and help more people in Ireland and Northern Ireland access safe abortion.

 

Caroline Kelly is also Dubliner living in London and working as a lawyer. She sees reproductive rights as a fundamental part of a wider rights spectrum, key to women’s freedom and prosperity. ASN happily benefits from her forensic attention to detail, project management and analytic skills.

A passionate supporter of reproductive rights, she brings her decade of volunteer management experience, as well as skills in event and project management, to support and encourage the growth of ASN’s resources.

Director

Mara Clarke founded Abortion Support Network between freelance jobs and raising her daughter. Until the amazing groups campaigning for abortion law reform make ASN obsolete, she’ll continue to work towards a world where “I can’t afford to have an abortion” isn’t the only reason someone becomes a parent.
