I am the Chair of Governors at Mill Rythe Junior School on Hayling Island and have been in this role for almost 14 years. Before taking a career break, I worked in Human Resources as a Senior HR Manager in retail banking and for a period of time I was also the Chair on a Partnership Board for the Starfish Childrens Centre, Hayling Island.
I love being a school governor and have seen many changes over the years but I have relished the challenge of the changing face of governance together with the higher expectations and standards that the Department for Education are setting for all children. I really enjoy working with governors and the school leadership team on improving outcomes for children.
I am a mum with grown up and teenage children so life is always busy, but when I do get some spare time I enjoy travelling, cooking, and reading.
