I have worked in schools for over 30 years with students of all ages from 5 to 18 and in a variety of ways centering around the welfare of the child. I have covered a variety of roles including business and finance, safeguarding, pastoral, ICT, facilities and project management. As part of the Senior Leadership Team, I played a major part in the strategic leadership of the schools. I was awarded an MBE in 2008 for services to education.
I have now retired from my role as Senior Assistant Principal at a Doncaster Secondary School and have taken up the post as Head of Finance with Flying Futures. This will enable me to use my experience and financial knowledge in a different setting.
When not working I love to spend time with my family, especially my five grandchildren. I enjoy running and also spending time in our holiday home in the Yorkshire Dales.
