I have lived in leafy Barnes with my family for 6-years, and my son will attend the the nursery later this year. I work for a pharmaceutical company where I lead an organisation in global clinical development, using my background of Clinical Pharmacology to help bring rare disease medicines to patients. Much of my career has been spent managing change, projects, risk, and people. I enjoy running on the river and spending time on Barnes pond and the parks. As governor I want to support Barnes Primary in providing a safe, inclusive, fun, and supportive learning environment for our community.
I have lived in beautiful Barnes for over four years, and have two children who attend Barnes Primary School. I am a Senior In-House Counsel at an international law firm, and prior to that I was a corporate finance lawyer. I am keen to ensure that Barnes Primary School continues to be an inclusive and aspiring place where children can thrive in learning and feel safe and supported at the same time. Apart from the busyness of being a working mummy to two young children, I am a massive foodie and cook, love long countryside walks and travelling!
