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 the branch Women’s Officer, 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.

I worked in Children’s Social Care from 1977 to 2013, most of it spent with Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Councils. I held a range of position including social worker, community centre manager, team manager, project manager and commissioning.

In 2015 I trained as Unison Steward so that together with other retired members we could help local Unison members who needed someone in their corner. I particularly find my extensive experience as a commissioner/negotiator helps when I am representing supporting members.

Outside the serious stuff I love playing tennis and hill walking with friends.
