I have been working at St Columba’s for the past 16 years and I care passionately about our school. I feel very privileged to be the head of school and continually strive to ensure that our children achieve their potential and receive the best education possible.


I am a wife and mum to our four grown up children. We have been foster carers for the last 10 years which is a very enriching and rewarding job.


In my spare time, I am involved in supporting my parish and helping out whenever possible. I also enjoy walking and spending time with my family.
