I have worked within the Further and Higher Education sector as a teacher and professional coach for over 18 years and have a clear passion for ensuring students of all ages and backgrounds have opportunities to flourish and grow. I currently deliver teacher education programmes and support the development of teachers in order for them to reach their full potential. Before working in education, I worked within the health and fitness industry as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor, an industry that I love and that gave me an opportunity to go in to teaching back in the year 2000! I am co-founder and trustee of the charity JOEL - The Complete Package and work hard to provide a platform to promote and support men’s mental health and wellbeing.
I chose to become a Parent Governor at Gateford Park as a result of my two children beginning their school life there and remembering just how much I loved my own primary school experiences and how those experiences helped to shape me in to the person I am today. I want to help support Gateford Park School in everything it can achieve and be part of helping to shape the lives of the young people it serves.
