Whilst studying for a BSc in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Brighton it became clear to me that, whilst I had a keen interest in the sciences, it was the teachers who had guided me through my teenage years that had made the biggest impact on me, and I realised that I wanted to follow in their footsteps and guide future generations.
Following my undergraduate degree, I studied for a PGCE at Keele University before taking my first post as a Science teacher in West Sussex, and fell in love with the world of education and particularly the pastoral care of young people. I then relocated to a school in Wokingham where I worked as a pastoral leader for 10 years alongside starting a family. In my spare time I am often found chasing after my three daughters, enjoying long walks through the British countryside, and volunteering at Wokingham Judo Club where I coach and act as the safeguarding lead.
I am incredibly excited to be joining St. Joseph’s College as Assistant Head of Wellbeing and Safeguarding and look forward to working alongside all members of our community to ensure the very best experiences for all the young people in our care.
