I have been associated with Hillyfield as a parent for the past four years and both of my children currently attend the school. I was part of the parent council and involved in enrichment sessions and then decided I would like to be more involved and committed to the school as a governor. My background is in Higher Education – until October 2017, I was the director of two history of art degree programmes run by Christie’s auction house in conjunction with the University of Glasgow.  I am now the director of a continuing professional development programme at the Attingham Trust.   I was elected Chair of the Governing Body in October 2017.  I very much enjoy working with the dedicated and exceptional staff at Hillyfield, and particularly enjoy our governor monitoring visits where we get to see the fantastic, creative classrooms and happy, confident learners.
