Personal Profile

Personal Background

After teaching at schools in Yorkshire, I worked for education authorities in the Manchester area and then for North Yorkshire County Council, where I helped introduce local management for schools.  I then went on to work for the Government's Department for Education and became head of the Department's Darlington site.  I now run a small holiday business in Richmond, in addition to working from home as a freelance editor/proof-reader of research articles.

I have lived in North Yorkshire for thirty years, and both our sons went to the local secondary schools in Richmond and Bedale.

This is the first time I have stood and been elected as Councillor, and I feel privileged to represent Swaledale on Richmondshire District Council.
