I am an experienced educationalist working in mainstream secondary school, and more recently in Special Education (SEMH) sector.  I also run a Educational Consultancy, advising parents and providing some tutors.  I have been very active in the voluntary sector, founding a s charity based in Salisbury which provides support to female survivors of abuse and acting as a Parental Champion for Young Minds, a national charity supporting young people.  Prior to moving to Woodfalls I had a very successful educational career, working first as a teacher, then Senior Teacher of a secondary school in Gosport and then as a School Inspector/Advisor for the Diocese of Salisbury.

Throughout my professional life I have been self-motivated and highly organised.  I am used to working with others and have had considerable experience of being on decision making committees.  I understand the importance of listening to others and making sure that their voices are heard, regardless of my personal opinion.  I am used to writing papers, policies and funding submissions, I am also an experienced public speaker
