Since joining the Board of Governors for Hollinwood Academy in 2016, I have been impressed with the passion and dedication of the staff which will ensure that the pupils have the best possible start to their lives.

I started my career as an Environmental Health Officer and then worked in Local Government and for the Audit Commission covering various roles. Retirement has given me the opportunity to do more voluntary work and becoming a Governor was one of my objectives. I also volunteer as a mentor for young people through the very successful Mahdlo project.

I have three children I am very proud of and I have enjoyed watching Manchester United for a number of years now. I see no reason why the Multi Academy Trust cannot be as successful as a team!
