I joined the Rush Common Academy Board in April 2017 and sit on the pupil support and welfare committee.  As a local resident, it has been interesting to find out more about how the school functions rather than observe from afar.

I have worked for the NHS for many years and I’m now in a role that focuses in quality improvement and improving safety within the NHS.  I also work clinically as a midwife.  I feel very privileged to love my work and thrive in an environment where I can support others.  One of the main reasons for becoming a school governor was to support Mrs Stevenson and her team in their vision for the school.

In my spare time, I enjoy running (especially Abingdon Park Run) and other fitness activities.  I love meeting up with friends, going to the theatre, classical music and eating cake.  I’m also undertaking a part time MSc in quality improvement just to keep me out of mischief!
