I've lived on the island since I was 13 and love it here. I have two small children and cannot think of a better place for them to grow up. Josh is in Year 1 of Lanesend and Ben will join in Reception in 2017.

I wanted to be a Governor to find out more about the school and the team and to try in my own way to contribute to the children's experience here. It's challenging but very rewarding and I hope to stay on the Board for some years and increase my involvement as my boys go through the school.

I work part time in the People and Development team at Liz Earle after having spent 10 years pre children in HR Management.

I have little spare time and that I do I'm generally running around and getting muddy!
