I have been a part of the school as a Teaching Assistant for 6 years and also as a parent for 20 years. Now my children have grown up I am able to give more time to supporting the school however I can.
I moved to the area in 2002 after a stint in the Royal Navy. I had various jobs, from a shop manager at Fabric warehouse for 3 years to project assistance at a homeless hostel in Eastwood.
After a time I set up my own cleaning company, and to make sure I had a enough income I joined the Fire Service as a retained firefighter, which I did for 10 years. And only really stopped as couldn't do the job with a small baby.
I now solely run the cleaning company. I have 10 staff who work with me and we clean 104 domestic properties a week.
I run the business side, so do all the invoicing, quotes and wages. As well as doing the girls rotas and managing annual leave and any issues which are raised. I'm basically every department rolled into one.
I'm a very positive forthcoming person, who is a doer not a moaner. I regard myself as approachable and friendly who would be an asset to Hillside.
I am a mum of two boys and live and work in Hucknall. I am on the senior management team of a small telecommunications company and hold a degree in Computer Science. I'm really excited to be a Governor for Hillside and hope to bring my voice as a parent of children in the school and my experience from the corporate world to the Hillside Governing Body.
I am a local business owner. I have a professional background in safeguarding and forensic reporting.
