Position: Diocesan Education Committee Foundation Governorblank_person
Interests: I have a daughter in reception and two older girls who are now at the high school having had a great start to their education thanks to Llangattock school.  With special responsibility for ALN/SEN, I have been a governor for a number of years. I live on a working farm in Llangattock although admit that my only participation is occasionally feeding the dog and helping with the admin! My career has been solely in the public sector working for a local authority then setting up my own consultancy business advising on organisational development primarily within the Welsh government. For the past 3 1/2 years I have worked in Swindon for a Government owned company as Chief of Staff and Company Secretary.  In my limited spare time I love relaxing with a good book and spending valuable time with my family.
