I qualified in 2008 with a degree in Business and HR Management from Northumbria University. I have worked in education now for 11 years and during that time I have achieved many qualifications including my Diploma in School Business Management. I am also a Safer Recruitment Accredited Trainer, a EU Certified GDPR Practitioner and a Certified Data Protection Officer. I worked with Darras Hall Primary School for 4 years as their School Support Adviser and was thrilled when I was asked to join the Academy Committee. I still work in this role from Northumberland County Council and support over 20 schools across Northumberland.
I live in Newcastle with my husband, son Parker and our two cats. At weekends and whilst on holiday we love to travel, explore the outdoors and eat cake!
