All about me

I love being the School Business Manager because every day is different. I have worked here since January 2019 and I love being part of the Newton Westpark family.   I am a mum to 2 teenagers  (a cheerleader and a footballer) so my life is very noisy and busy. We also have pet guinea pigs called Malibu and Midnight. When I have chance, I love to spend time in the countryside with my family whether it be walking or glamping.  I also love to read and meet with my friends.

My favourite book

Lord Of The Rings

What I’d like to learn

I am fascinated by History and I’d love to learn more.
