my local school. I have over 14 years’ experience within the Higher Education sector working with
university students, academics, the local community and national governing bodies.

days, challenge days, large scale conferences, and volunteering and mentoring programmes. I am
currently a mentor for the universities career service and personal academic tutor for the Faculty of
In my role at the University of Southampton, we work with schools to inspire young people to see
Higher Education as a real benefit to their cultural and career capital. Being a governor I feel I can

continuing in education.
I am mother to two small children and have lived in the village for 5 years. I am a keen gym
competitor and enjoy amateur dramatics and craft work.
I am an Appointed Governor appointed by the members of the Academy Trust and my term ends on
5 June 2020.
I am a member of the Pupil Discipline, Curriculum & Early Years Committee and of the Marketing Committee. In addition, I have a responsibility for Looked after Children and Special Educational Needs.
