With a background in Psychology, I intend to follow my passion and pursue an MA in Psychotherapy when my youngest child reaches school age. Coming from an international background, I became Chair of Governors to pursue my interest and develop a greater understanding of the educational system in which my children were spending their early years of learning. I am married and apart from family time, my interests include health & fitness, scuba diving, travel and cooking.
