I work for the Ministry of Defence, where I am a Programme Manager with responsibility for delivering scientific capability and the development of new research facilities. Previously, I was a post-doctoral research fellow in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham. I enjoy hill walking with my husband, Paul, and am a keen amateur landscape photographer. We have a son, Theo, who was born in 2012.
I work part-time as a Life Insurance Actuary and Programme Manager at Zurich and spend the rest of my time with my children and, at weekends, my husband. I enjoy trying new craft activities and involving the children as much as possible. I am looking forward to working with the Governors and Staff to make East Wichel the best it can be.
I am a Project Manager working in the construction industry, through my career I have undertaken many school extension projects and been involved in building new schools. I have also been part of a University’s in house estates team. Through these roles I have learnt how important Governor support is in the well running of a school, and I wanted to help in my local community. I have two young girls who keep me busy and if there is a quiet moment I love to knit or crochet and hoard wool.
I am a senior business intelligence developer, working to provide the right data to allow the right analysis.
I have a Degree in Business Management and currently work for Microsoft in the Commercial sales business – specialising in Contracts & Licensing for the last 5 years. My family and I moved to East Wichel 4 years ago. My 2 children attend the school. I hope to be able to help the school build upon the success it is already achieving.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends and visiting new places.
I have a strong background in mathematics, science and IT. I work as an Actuarial Analyst at Zurich. I have a passion for higher learning and progressive education. I hope to use my skillset to help enrich the experience of the children at the school.
I am Tutor Manager and Safeguarding Officer at New College Swindon. Previously, I have worked in Management and lecturing across various Educational sectors, state and private, including college, school, SEN and adult education.
Curriculum, quality and Child Protection are my driving factors; to provide every child with a comfortable, secure, nurturing environment in order for them to develop and thrive. I am very pleased to be working with the East Wichel Governing Board, supporting and further developing such an already successful school and nursery.
I am currently (Nov 2019) in my third year of teaching Year 5 at East Wichel Community Primary and Nursery. In my spare time I enjoy rock climbing and playing badminton. I am looking forward to this new and challenging role and supporting the school on its developmental journey in as many ways as possible.
