I was elected as Chair of Governors in September 2014 having previously served on the board for 6 years, 2 of those as vice chair. I am chair of the finance committee and the admissions commitee and a member of the pay and personnel committee.
My 2 children are both former pupils of St John's. I attend St John’s church, acting as the church treasurer and my daughter is an enthusiastic member of the junior choir and junior church.
A chartered accountant by profession, I worked for 25 years at Ernst & Young. I am able to utilise the experience gained there in my various roles as a governor. I now act as a non executive director on several public limited companies.
In my spare time, I enjoy a glass of wine with friends, watching football and holidays with the family, particularly skiing.
