I have been parent governor since Hollinwood opened in 2015. I am very proud and feel privileged to be a part of the governing body of Hollinwood Academy and the wider New Bridge MAT.

My son Lucas is now 10 years old, he joined Hollinwood age 7 on its opening day. His progress to date has been remarkable. Hollinwood has made such a positive impact on Lucas’s life and in turn our family life. So many children like Lucas will continue to develop, progress and achieve so much at Hollinwood. I am passionate about ensuring Holllinwood continues to support and enable every child to achieve their potential.

I have worked for Manchester City Council for 20 years, providing support to and managing services for adults with disabilities. I feel privileged to have a career which I truly enjoy, it challenges me every day!
