I was educated in Southwell where I lived before attending university in Colchester to study Language and Linguistics. I moved back to live in Newark over 10 years ago and have worked in Newark or the east midlands region since then. I am married and have 2 children at the school. Outside of family, I work as a business management specialist, specialising in governance, safety and quality management. I have worked with local NHS organisation over a number of years, completing my MA in Healthcare Risk Management. I have also worked extensively in the industrial utilities sector and construction, looking after quality, safety and environmental management. I also work with smaller organisations locally to achieve or maintain standards and accreditations to help their business. I need to get to know the workings of my organisations quickly in order to help them effectively, and I hope to bring these audit and examination skills to the role of Parent Governor at the School.
