I became a Community Governor in January 2014, and my daughter was in Year6 at the time. Born in Exeter, I grew up in the South Zeal area. After 12 years living in Cornwall I returned, moving to Hatherleigh in 2013. A direct descendant of the Pearse family, I feel very at home here.
Governance combines two of my passions, for early years learning and development and business. Both my Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Education, and my 13 years in business as a pioneering entrepreneur have equipped me with many useful skills and experiences to bring to the school leadership team.
Schools are the cornerstones of our communities and moulding places for the future of our society. I enjoy and am proud to be a part of such an organisation where you hope to make a difference for the good, no matter how small
