Where did you grow up?
Both ends of the country. I was born in Abergavenny, Wales and lived in Monmouth for 10 years before moving to Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.
Monmouth School, Wisbech Grammar School and then Cardiff University.
Your previous place of work and role:
I worked at St Christopher School in Letchworth as a Teacher of Geography, Careers Coordinator and in charge of Rugby.
What are you most looking forward to about joining King’s Ely?
I’m looking forward to being part of a vibrant, forward-thinking community with a unique heritage and rich history, and where individuals matter.
Hobbies/interests outside of school:
I enjoy watching Rugby and playing it (when my knees let me!) and I also like to walk. My main passion however is for Land Rovers, particularly old Series Land Rovers and Defenders. I enjoy working on them in my free time.
I have a dog, a Labrador called Winston, who is a great companion on walks and in the Land Rovers. He enjoys the bumpy ride.
