I was elected to The Buckingham School Governing Body as a Parent Governor in 2013 and have been Chair of Governors since 2016. I am married and have lived in Buckingham since 1994 - both my daughters attended The Buckingham school.

My professional background is in Information Technology and have worked in senior leadership roles across multiple industry sectors for over 25 years.

I have a belief that all children should have an education that enables them to maximise their full potential, that will give them a good foundation as they enter adult life, and it is delivered in a safe & friendly environment.

In my spare time I like to play golf, and cycle.
