For over ten years I have worked in Portsmouth as the HR and Administration Director of Blake Morgan LLP. We are a leading law firm with offices in London, Wales and the South East. I became a Governor of the school in December 2014.
Having encouraged people in my business to get involved with our local communities I thought I should practice what I preach by indulging my passion for education and volunteering as a Governor. I want to support the school staff in all they do to raise the aspirations of pupils and help pupils realise their potential.
Before joining Blake Morgan I held various people management and development roles at another law firm, in the police service and in the coal industry. I also spend some time as a management consultant advising businesses and not for profit organisations in many sectors.
I have three children, two now grown up and one at senior school. To relax I love spending time with my family, playing the occasional game of golf and taking long walks with our two energetic spaniels.
