I have worked with children all my life, mainly as a Riding Teacher and a Vaulting Instructor. I also qualified as a Teaching Assistant to work child friendly hours. I love working with young people and feel privileged to be part of a positive school experience for those who struggle without support. I currently work 1:1 with a pupil at St Saviour’s Juniors. I gladly bring these experiences to my role as a Governor at St Mark’s. I worship at Hay Hill Baptist Church.
