I was born and raised in Harrow and went to Nower Hill High School. My husband and I moved to Pinner nearly 4 years ago to raise our two daughters, who are in Year 1 and Year 3 at West Lodge. As a parent, I have witnessed first-hand the dedication of the teachers and parents towards the school and I became a Governor because I want to see the school continue to thrive.
I have always been interested in the public sector and have a Masters in Public Administration. I have spent the bulk of my career working in the public sector so have a good understanding about how schools work and the challenges that we are likely to face in the forthcoming years.
Until recently, I worked for 10 years for Transport for London as Head of External for the Underground, Rail and Crossrail managing a large team of communication professionals. I am now an elected Councillor for the London Borough of Harrow and run my own consultancy company providing communications support to major projects.
As the daughter of a teacher, I have always had a strong interest in education. I very much believe in the West Lodge ethos that each child has a spark within them, and am extremely proud to be a Governor at a school that endeavours to make this happen.
