Roles: Chair of Trustees; GDPR

Term: January 2018 - August 2025

 

I have lived in Great Missenden for 22 years.  I have two children, both of whom attend The Misbourne.  My son is in his final year and my daughter is in year 10. 

I have a well-established career in the automotive industry, and am also a business coach specialising in middle leader coaching.  I also coach people returning to work after a career break or parental leave.   

I have been on the Board of Trustees for five years now and have been Chair for two.  Understanding about the education system, the funding, and how this works in practice, is of great interest to me.  I am passionate about the school and its place in the local community, and how I, and my fellow Trustees, can support the school, the students and the staff.

Our family moved to the Chilterns over 30 years' ago and our daughter successfully completed her GCSEs and A Levels at The Misbourne before graduating with a First Class Honours Degree from UEA, where she continues to study for a Masters.

Since leaving school, I continue to enjoy what has been a long career in The City of London with NatWest, where I am proud to have played a role in helping many hundreds of businesses, community organisations and colleagues achieve their goals and ambitions. 

I have served on the Trustee Board at The Misbourne since 2012 in various roles, including Chair, and currently bring my financial and commercial experience to the Finance and Audit committees, where I also champion improvement in reading skills and the sustainability agenda across the school.

I am enjoying retirement after a career of 43 years in the financial services industry. During my career I undertook a range of roles, these included in financial reporting, risk management, data control and change management. I was also an Employee Trustee of two company pension schemes.

I have been a school governor for over 25 years and have a range of experience across early years, primary and secondary phases in both mainstream and special schools. During this time I have been a member of various committees and panels and have experience of federation and conversion to academy status.

I am a big sports fan, although these days the enjoyment comes from spectating rather than participating! My other interests include travel, walking, natural history and the arts.

I am a firm believer in the importance of education and the power of school communities to inspire children and young people to develop a joy of learning and the life skills to lead happy and successful lives.

We have lived in Great Kingshill for 28 years. Our four children were all Buckinghamshire-educated and currently we have a daughter in Year 10 at The Misbourne.

My career was spent in the fragrance industry; creating, developing and testing perfume for all manner of products which have a perceivable odour, from fine fragrance and personal care products to detergents and air fresheners.

Supporting a number of primary schools in South Buckinghamshire, I have been actively involved in school governance for more than 10 years - more latterly serving as Chair of Governors at one of The Misbourne’s larger feeder schools.

I joined the Trustee Board of The Misbourne in December 2021.

My wife and I have lived in the Great Missenden area for many years and we moved into the village five years ago.  I have been an appointed Trustee of The Misbourne since 2013.

My involvement with The Misbourne goes back many years. Originally, I acted as a Business Adviser to the Young Enterprise team. I have continued in this role but, more recently, I have been actively supporting careers activities. As well as helping with practice interviews, CVs and careers events, I have also helped a number of students find work experience opportunities.

I have a degree in physics from Imperial College but spent my career with IBM. I was initially technical but concentrated on project management (PM) later. In a corporate role, I was responsible for developing the PM methods used by IBM project managers across the world. I have professional membership of the British Computer Society and the Association for Project Management, and I'm a Chartered Engineer.

Locally, I have been very active in the Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul, helping with both spiritual and community activities. I have also been involved in clergy reviews and safeguarding training for the Diocese of Oxford.

My husband and I have lived in Little Kingshill for over 20 years with our two daughters.

When I was growing up, I was lucky enough to have passionate teachers in a school very much like The Misbourne.  I felt that I wanted to give back to my local community. so, when the opportunity to join the Trustee Board came up in December 2019, I jumped at the chance.

I left Hull University with a degree in Economics and joined 3M in finance, then moved to sales and marketing and business leadership. While working for 3M, I completed my MBA and expanded my career into general management.

I have had a very enjoyable and successful career leading several multinational businesses through major transformations, as MD and in several Board positions, both in the UK and internationally.  I am pleased to be able to bring this wealth of experience to my role as a Trustee.

I have always been passionate about the fact that it is people who create success. Ensuring the best care is taken of people's wellbeing is essential. It is therefore an honour to be the Safeguarding and Wellbeing trustee for the school.
