I was elected as Parent Governor in July 2015. I have two sons at the school, my eldest is in Year 4 and the other is in Year 2.

My background is in education and after graduating I completed my PGCE and taught in a large secondary school in Feltham for 13 years, where I was Head of Sixth Form for a significant number of those years. I am currently on a career break but still have a keen interest in, and knowledge of, new initiatives and educational policies. It is a privilege to work as a Governor in an outstanding school, and I am very excited by the opportunities it presents.

Along with my fellow Governors I very much want Holy Family to continue to thrive and succeed. My background is in business consulting and organisational improvement. I consider myself to be a positive, fun, team player with a healthy ability to get things done. I grew up in Ealing - going to Catholic primary and secondary schools. I am very familiar with our local area and the wonderful diversity of people that make it special. I have a daughter and son at Holy Family and am motivated to see the wide potential in all the children being realised. Another keen interest I have is in increasing the involvement of male carers in the life of the school.
