I had previously served as a Governor at Mark Hall Academy working with current leadership team. I have been fortunate enough to work with fantastic staff, students and fellow Governors in support of our children. Since the re-implementation of the Local Governing Body, I have been fortunate enough to be invited back with the aim to continue development opportunities within the academy for the staff and your children and provide a safe working environment for all.
I have been a serving Essex Police Officer since 1992, working locally in and around the Harlow area, so I have a wide knowledge of some of the issues facing your leadership team at Mark Hall Academy. My aim is to make you as parents, the staff and the pupils proud of who they are, what they can achieve, help them be the best that they can be, through positivity, experience and enthusiasm. Previously I have given career development talks and shared my personal experiences competing in long distance sporting events, about the power of positivity.
I am a firm believer that ‘Anything is Possible’
