Parent Governor since 2014
(Member of the Teaching and Learning Committee)
I am married with 2 children, both attend Woolmer Hill School. This is my first appointment as a parent governor, and I am enjoying the challenges that the role brings.
I have a seafaring background and worked in the Merchant Navy on oil and product tankers, and cable vessels up to the rank of Second Officer. I have since taken up a shore based role with Shell Shipping in the Compliance and Health and Safety Team, promoting safety at sea, working with multi-cultural teams on board our vessels to execute a safe working environment. I am also part of the incident managemen team, dealing with shipping emregencies as they occur. I am particularly interested in the wellbeing and development of children, which is the reason I have taken the post of parent governor. I am also squad manager for U12 Girls at Haslemere Hockey Club.
