I have worked in local government for 23 years, currently in the employment of Torridge District Council as an Environmental Protection Officer.

I have two sons who attend Beaford Community Primary and Nursery School and, since their admission, have watched and experienced their impressive development assisted in the main by the attentive and caring nature of the teaching staff.  I have a very keen interest to ensure the school continues to deliver high standards of education in a caring and supportive environment. As well as being keen to promote a good education to all children, I also recognise the need to have and participate in activities and interests outside of the school environment.  For example, my sons attend swimming lessons and show a general interest in sport.  Recently as a family we participated in a charity run raising a significant amount of money in the process.

I have experience of working for a finance broker which required an understanding of company finances and an  element of risk analysis to ensure all information provided was accurate and correct. I was also the manager of my department so I was responsible for the team working with me. This provided me with valuable knowledge and experience to which I can put to good use as a school governor.

 I currently work for the family farm where I am responsible for managing the bank account and I volunteer at Beaford school to assist the pupils with their reading skills. I frequently assist with and partake in PTA fundraising events.

As a Mum to a child starting education, I wanted to be involved in school life somehow.  Governors felt the right way to go, as I work as an Accountant in a large food manufacturing company and I felt I could bring these skills to the board.  However, I feel being a Governor at Beaford School has certainly taught me more than I could ever bring to them!!
