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.

I was appointed as a school governor in January 2019, this is my first role as a governor, and I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about this role and Atherton St Georges CE Primary School. My professional background is in Human Resources, and I have over 19 years’ experience. It was when I joined Wigan Council Schools HR team 7 years ago, I became interested in school governance, and I was pleased when I was appointed.

I have loved learning about all the brilliant work done by the teachers and all the staff in all our schools, especially through the pandemic over the last 18 months and I am privileged to part of such an amazing MAT. I am committed to learning as much as I can and supporting the school and children who attend.

In my spare time I love travelling and spending time with my family and friends.
