I grew up in Letchworth, and after returning to Hertfordshire with a family of my own I was keen to be involved with the local schools and community. As a governor, I aim to both support and challenge the school and its staff to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to reach the best of their ability. I believe these early years at school are incredibly important, and want to help Studlands Rise continue to be a welcoming learning environment that can inspire and encourage. I am particularly interested in supporting mathematics and numeracy at the school, as I have experience in statistics and coding from my own career.
I have two young daughters, who I hope will attend Studlands Rise within the next few years. My career in the Civil Service has involved data analysis in areas such as educational performance and finance. Outside of work, I love having trips out with my family, enjoying good food, and I’m planning to start playing tennis again (soon!).
