I became a volunteer at St. Columba’s after being approached by Mrs. Eileen Walker and subsequently joined the school in October 2015.

In March 2016 the Diocesan Education Service appointed me as an Academy Foundation Director to The Lumen Christi MAC. I serve as Vice-Chair on the Finance, Facilities & Human Resources Committee and the Audit Committee.

I qualified as a Children and Families Social Work and have spent over 30 years working with Birmingham Education Department. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with committee members and staff of the St. Columba’s.

I am a parishioner at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Rednal. I am an active member of the parish St. Vincent de Paul Society and a founding member of the Three Parishes Bethany Group (a monthly group which meets to reflect on the Holy Gospel and make our devotion to Our Lady through the Rosary).

I am keen on all the Arts; travel and cooking. I greatly enjoy being with my family.
