Professional Background











After graduating, I worked in Cambridge for several years before relocating to Wimborne in 2004. My professional experience includes over 20 years working for global high-tech and life science organisations in the field of Human Resources.   


Currently, I work for the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and life science company as Global HR Business Partner.




Motivation for Becoming a Governor






I have always had a natural interest in education and I have the utmost respect for those in the teaching profession. This, coupled with having three young children myself, convinced me to become a Governor.


Two of my children now attend middle school locally having been fortunate to go through Wimborne First School since Reception and my youngest child is currently enjoying the many opportunities and challenges in Year 2.   


The excellent mix of experience and abilities within the Governing Body brings a very useful perspective and dimension when evaluating important topics such as progress and attainment as well as the future strategic direction of the school.
