Reflecting on my life time career in education, I am so pleased that my profession allows me to immerse myself in this world.

Driven by a commitment to make a difference to the lives of children and young people, I am passionate about what I do.

I have extensive school governing experience across all phases and settings.

  • Chair of a large secondary Academy
  • Member of a primary phase multi-academy trust
