I joined the Buxton Junior School Governing Body in January 2017 as a Local Authority appointed Governor.
I have lived in Buxton for nearly 20 years, and both of my, now grown up, children attended local schools. My interest in education stems from being a parent and a desire to ensure that all our children are offered the best possible start in life, regardless of their background.
I am currently Derbyshire County Councillor for Buxton North and East and Deputy Cabinet member for Children’s Services. Until May 2015 I was a High Peak Borough councillor for Fairfield.
