I have thirty-five years experience working in various accounting roles and have been a governor for over sixteen years. I am delighted to be serving as part of the Board of Trustees for The Wings’ CE Trust and look forward to making valuable contributions to the schools in our Trust. I have two children and strongly believe every child should be nurtured to achieve everything of which they are capable….. and then a little bit more. In my spare time I enjoy visiting  the theatre, reading and puzzles.
