Preeti Johal – HR Trustee

Preeti joins Colostomy UK as our Human Resources (HR) Trustee, bringing with her over 20 years of experience in the field gained working in the charity and healthcare sectors as well as in local government and public services. Looking back over her career, Preeti says she more or less ‘fell’ into HR while at university; it was here that the seeds for what she terms her ‘HR passion’ germinated. She is now Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (MCIPD) qualified and also delivers training in various aspects of HR practice.

Her first professional engagement with the charity sector was seven years ago and she hasn’t looked back since. Being able to make a difference supporting charities with her expertise is something that gives her a great deal of job satisfaction! She first became aware of Colostomy UK two years ago, shortly after her twin sister was diagnosed with bowel cancer. Both Preeti and her sister found Colostomy UK to be a great source of support and information. She was also attracted to our mission and values.

Preeti, who lives in west London with her partner, tries to live a plant-based life and has a love for animals and football. She is also a firm believer in doing everything you can to have a healthy body and healthy mind and so takes part in all sorts of activities, including: yoga, weight training, running and football. Preeti is really excited about joining Colostomy UK’s board of trustees and is particularly grateful that she can use her expertise for an amazing cause.
