I have been a member of the Governing Board of Lady Manners School since 2000. I am appointed by the Local Authority. I am passionate about providing the best educational outcomes for the students of the school.

I worked in Trading Standards for 36 years, specialising in product safety. I was also the departmental lead for training, I was the internal verifier for our professional qualification and mentored apprentices. I am now retired but still actively involved in the Chartered Trading Standards Institute regionally and nationally.

I enjoy singing, baking, holidays and walking my spaniel.
