Why did you want to be a governor?

I live locally and was very keen to be able to contribute and get involved in the local community. Being a governor was something I had long wanted to do and I am very excited about being able to join the impressive Sheen Mount team. 

Which Committee do you sit on?


What do you do when you are not being a governor?

My entire career has been based in London’s university sector, most recently at UCL, as Faculty Assistant Director, managing resources and leading the administration team. Leisure interests all derive from a passion for observing nature and for learning (ornithology, botany, Art, crafts).  

During your time as a governor, what achievement has made you most proud?

I am new to the role of Governor and 2018-19 will be my first year.  However, I understand there is plenty of substantive work I can get involved with and I am eager to add to the good work already being done by an amazing staff team and experienced Board of Governors.
