I live in Horley with my husband Hatel and our son, Rayan, who currently attends Horley Infant School. We also have recently added 10 new fishes to our family!

I work in the Airlines team at Gatwick Airport Limited and have the pleasure of analysing data and pulling together business cases to either win new airline business, or to persuade our current airlines to fly to new and upcoming destinations.

I am privileged to be accepted in as a co-opted governor at the school where I hope to bring in my knowledge and experience of data analysis and reporting. I love working with data and spreadsheets and I hope to help the teachers unlock the value of data so they can be comfortable preparing reports to the various stakeholders whilst also ensuring that there are clear and simple key messages that can be easily understood by all – basically if your granny can’t understand it then it shouldn’t be in there!

I also am supporting the school to ensure the high levels of standard and achievement are maintained in a safe and nurturing school environment.
