I have been a school governor for ten years.  I am also Assistant Head Teacher here at St Mark's. My first post as a governor was at Atherton St George's and I have been a Governor at St Mark's since I started working here in 2015.

I love being a Governor and working continuously with the other Governors, Trustees, Staff and our families to ensure our children have the best education, experiences and opportunities they possibly can! 

In my spare time I love spending time with my family, I have a little girl called Poppy. I also have a season ticket at Anfield and love to watch Liverpool play.

I firmly believe that every child should have high aspirations and deserves all the love and support needed for them to reach their goals. 

On a personal level,  I'm a busy, devoted grandma who loves baking, yoga and walking.

I have been a member of the St Mark's governing body since 2019. As a high school teacher with over twenty-five years teaching experience, I am delighted to be able to use the skills and knowledge I have developed over that time to benefit the school community and to support the school in ensuring that the children and their families get the best possible experience from their time at St Mark's.

I am especially interested in the mental and emotional well-being of everyone involved in the school.
