Foundation Governor (Diocesan Board of Education)
Standards Committee Member
Term of Office 12/12/18 – 11/12/22
Declaration of Business or Pecuniary Interest: Director, Exeter Travel Clinic
As someone who grew up in Devon, has enjoyed a career spanning several countries, now with a child at St Peter’s, it is an honour to support the teaching and leadership team through serving on the Governing body of this excellent local school.
My background in healthcare has provided me with a broad set of skills and experiences. These include senior clinical nurse management within acute and emergency settings, through to creation and directorship of an independent healthcare practice. My clinical and leadership experience extends into overseas practice, where I have been involved in expeditions to remote and challenging environments.
Throughout my career I have fostered a keen involvement in education, providing clinical instruction for medical professionals, culminating in the recent development of the RCPSG post-graduate International Diploma in Expedition and Wilderness Medicine.
With an MSc in Global and Remote Healthcare, I value not only the importance education is to our children here in Exeter, but also the sustainable impact the St Peter’s educational ethos has on our wider, global community. My passion is that through developing thoughtful and purpose-driven determination, students will open a world of possibilities.
