Profile:

I became a Parent Governor at Elburton in 2012 and I soon recognised that the Governors and Staff had a genuine commitment to improving the education offered to pupils at the school. It was this ethos which prompted me to accept the invitation to remain a Governor in 2016 when I became an Appointed Governor.

My career has been in the building and construction sector. I served a five-year apprenticeship and worked to become CEO of my own company. My experience in this arena has allowed me to assist Elburton with its estate and given me the ability to manage and evaluate budgets and financial resources all to the benefit of the School.

I enjoy walking, fishing and rugby. I coach the U11’s Rugby team at a local club where I am also responsible for the Club’s Health and Safety and First Aid.

My time as a Governor has been challenging but a very rewarding experience and I feel privileged to be involved with such a dedicated team.
