I have been actively involved in the school since my son started in 2006, and have had both my son and daughter move through the school (both have now moved on to secondary education). I was Treasurer of the Friends for 6 years, and love getting involved with organising and working at fundraising events (such as fairs) and community events (BBQs, Picnics). I am still actively involved in The Friends, and was elected Parent Governor in 2013. I am now throwing myself into my roles as a Trustee and Trust Governor. Outside of school I worked for Mars for 17years, running projects across Europe to research and launch new products. I am now lecturing in marketing at the University of Lincoln and Loughborough University, and am consulting and helping companies with their marketing and business strategy. In addition I am involved in charitable activities including links with a Township school in South Africa, have received the ‘Queens Award for voluntary service’ for work with Pera Foundation helping young people develop business skills, and created school programmes combining business & nutrition. I am enjoying using my work knowledge and love for the school to help make an even bigger difference to our children’s school experiences.
