I grew up in High Wycombe and moved back to the area in 2011. I have two children currently at Elmtree: my daughter is in year 2 and my son has just started in the nursery. Since Eva joined the school, we have been impressed by the feeling of community it has, as well as its focus on nurturing the children. Eva has thoroughly enjoyed her introduction to school life. Becoming a governor gives me the opportunity to give something back to the school and support it in the good work that it does.
My professional background is varied. I did my first degree in English Literature, after which I taught English as a Foreign Language, first overseas and then back in the UK for several years. I then returned to university part-time to study Economics and now work as an economist in the Civil Service. I have worked at the Department for Transport since 2010 and now lead a team which works to ensure the Department makes decisions which represent good value for money.
