Role: Branch Secretary
Phone number: 01908 253883
After working for over 20 years in the private sector, I started working as a Teaching Assistant in a Bedford primary school in 2005. Since then, I’ve worked in various school roles, most recently as Safeguarding Officer in a secondary school.
I became Branch Secretary for the UNISON MK Area Branch in April 2018 on the retirement of Graham Blues. One of my main priorities in the role is to try to encourage more people, especially women and young members, to become active in the union as workplace stewards or branch officers.
As well as Branch Secretary, I am Vice Chair of the Regional Women’s Committee, Chair of the South East Regional Schools Forum and the region’s rep on the National Schools Sector Committee.
Away from the union, I spend much of my spare time reading and attracting stray cats.
