I became interested in becoming a governor of a school through the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants who were advertising for people to put themselves forward. For me it felt as a way of giving something back to the community and helping the younger generation. A position came available at the Stretham Primary School and I jumped at the chance in December 2014. I am a qualified Accountant with more than 30 years experience in various industries. I want to use my financial and technical skills to help take Stretham Primary School forward with the headteacher, the staff and the other Governors.
I am currently the Co-chair with Anne Cowan.
