I joined as a co-opted governor in 2017. I was formerly head of the Banking and International Finance group of a City law firm, though I now work as a consultant and coach. Like other Ambler governors, I was seeking to do something useful in the local community and being a school governor has enabled me to use my skills to make what I hope is a positive contribution (in areas such as school finance, inclusion and HR). It has also enabled me to learn a huge amount about the school system in England and the vibrant, outstanding place that is Ambler primary. I am a member of the Finance and Personnel Committee and the Development and Learning Committee, Pupil and Sports Premium link governor and Vice Chair, all of which I enjoy tremendously, and learn more each term.
