Members' Representative Director
I am retired and living in Hove, East Sussex, but lived all of my working life in and around London.
I worked in Education, mostly in a further education college in central London where I had a number of roles in Student administration, course information and advice, marketing and publications, student finance and lastly in examinations. My favourite part of all of my roles in the college was providing impartial help to students and visitors to the college to decide on their next step, whether that meant at our college or at another college that provided a course that better fitted their needs.
As a vision-impaired person myself I was able also to provide information on the support that a person who identified with a disability could access, to help them to realise their full potential while studying.
My interests are in family history (my family tree goes back to around 1630), crafts and language learning. I speak French and German and have a smattering of other languages including Italian and Spanish.
I joined WASPI when I first moved to the Brighton and Hove area in 2017, and quickly became involved with my local group. Since then I was nominated by my colleagues to WASPI’s Members’ Committee, and was lucky enough to be accepted. I am proud to have been nominated by my fellow committee members into the role of Chair of the Committee and non-executive director, along with Flick Foreman.
