Meet our board members.
We’re a talented group of individuals interested in homeopathy.
Renata Wilde RSHom
Chair of the Board
When the College changed its status to a social enterprise 8 years ago I was one of the founding members. I had just qualified from the College and was very keen for the College to continue to provide first class homeopathic education in the North West.
I have been Chair of the College for 3 years and my role includes working with the Principal and other Board Members overseeing all aspects of the College.
I am a Solicitor which has proved useful in legal matters and helping to structure the College.
I became interested in homeopathy 15 years ago following a serious illness and since then homeopathy has captivated my interest and desire to learn more.
I run a homeopathic practice and also a drop in clinic in Altrincham. I also work part time as a Solicitor.
I am married with 4 grown up children and 4 grand children
Ranjana Devi Maisuria
Finance Director; College Clinician
“My love for homoeopathy started 24 years before I graduated from the college. I have been involved in running of the college since 2008. My vision is to establish NWCH as a long term financially stable organisation! I help students’ learning in my clinic and share my skills in setting up and running your own business.
Each year I join a team of volunteers to organise Health Awareness Day in Oldham. This event is supported by NHS and Oldham Council, where medical professionals and complementary practitioners provide free health checks and advice on health matters to the general public.” Ranjana trained as a homoeopath after a long career in Financial Management with University of London.
Ranjana ran her own health food and vitamins store with complementary practitioners until 2008.

Emma Cox RSHom
I have been on the board since 2013 when I joined as a student representative. I was co-opted back onto the board after I qualified. My ambitions for the college is for it to be clear and concise in its aims and delivery of quality homeopathic education and to find a balance between being supportive and nurturing of its students yet be streamlined and professional in order for this to happen. I like to think I bring some useful analytical and lateral thinking to board meetings. I also try to pick up admin related tasks where needed and try to support the Chair and college Principal. I have a good rapport with students both in classes and in student clinics and this enables me to keep in touch with the reality of studying and understand how our decisions impact them. I have experience of moderating and running web-based communities and both this, and my education have helped me understand in practical terms that people have different but equally valid opinions and I try to find ways to bring them together.
Cath Donovan RSHom
Principal Lecturer, Human Biology & Physiology; College Clinician; Clinical Supervisor.
Clinical experience in UK and Botswana HIV clinic. “My area of expertise is anatomy, physiology & pathology. It is important to me that this knowledge is related to homoeopathic principles and treatment.
My ambition is get across the identification of the symptoms one should analyse and prioritise in order to reflect the centre of the patient’s case.
I have a published case in physostigmine related to Parkinson’s, available on hpathy.com.”

Sue Hladky RSHom
“I love working with groups of students. It is a privilege to be with them and watch each one blossom in their own particular way, as they develop their clinical skills.
I really enjoy sharing ideas and interests in Homeopathy. We can all learn from each other.
My research project was on the remedy Thea, made from tea. I focus my writing on introductory articles for local health magazines to get the word out to the public about how great homoeopathy is.”
Background: Sue trained as a homoeopath after a career in Teaching.
Andrene Mills, RSHom
“I have been passionate about the potential of homeopathy since my 1st remedy in 2000.
Alongside my private practice, I currently work with students in a clinic setting at the Kath Locke Centre and also undertake case supervision. I love reflecting upon and exploring the therapeutic relationship between patient and homeopath. I love the journey that we go on together. I hope to strengthen the Clinical Practice of students by bringing some practical guidance and teaching into a college setting. The common thread running through my life in whatever role I have undertaken has been the desire to nurture and help others realise their potential. My aim is to ‘Keep it Simple’ whilst supporting the academic rigour expected of the college.
Background: Original career was in retail banking where I had a wide variety of roles. I taught in FE for 10 years. “
