I am a Chartered Accountant, working with a local accountancy firm. Throughout my 30-year career I have worked with schools and charities as auditor, accountant and advisor. In my current role I work with a variety of different types of school in Sussex and Kent so have a good understanding of how school finances should operate. I served as a parent governor on the Blackboys School governing body for one year before federation and am now an Associate governor, serving on the Finance & Resources committee. Through my wide-ranging financial expertise and experience I hope to make a useful contribution to the work of the governing body.
