I have been a parent governor since 2016 and a co-chair of the Governing Body since September 2018. I have three children at Kimpton Primary School - from the start of the 21/22 academic year I will have two children in year 5 and one in year 2.
I have lots of happy memories of my primary school, which laid the foundations for a love of learning that carried on through comprehensive school, A-levels, Oxford University and, finally, a Professional Doctorate. I want to help Kimpton Primary School provide a happy and inspiring experience for all pupils so that they also develop a love of learning and go on to achieve their full potential.
I am a registered Counselling Psychologist with experience of working in the NHS, private healthcare and the charity sector. Before qualifying, I worked in HR for seven years - during this period, I was the HR manager at Europe’s biggest biscuit factory!
Parenting, working and being a governor takes up much of my time, but I also enjoy seeing friends, keeping fit, reading and seeing my wider family.
