I joined the Governing body for Bishops Down in May 2017, having volunteered to join as a co-opted Governor. I grew up in Tunbridge Wells and went to TWGGS before I moved away for University and work life. I returned “home” in 2015 along with my young family.
I work in London in the Oil and Gas industry, having spent 15 years working in a variety of trading-related roles. I hope to be able to use the business skills assimilated during my working life to good use as part of my role as Governor.
My other role is as a mother to a toddler who is currently in Nursery education, about to embark on school life. I have a strong desire to do my bit to ensure all children enjoy their school years and all have the chance to experience the same opportunities as others. I believe Bishops Down really reflects this ethos and the caring, inclusive environment is an inspiration.
I sit on the Pay and Personnel Committee.
