Born, raised and educated in Scotland, I moved to England in my early 20s and have lived and worked here since in a variety of cities including Newcastle, Oxford, Nottingham and London. My working life has been devoted to education, working in universities as an academic specialising in education and, most recently, as a Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University. Now semi-retired, I continue to work part-time for the University and I'm looking forward to applying the skills and experience I gained as a University manager to the service of the school community.
With our sons now grown up and left home, my husband and I made the great decision to move to Harlaxton last year. In our spare time, we enjoy gardening, walking and travelling.
