It is a pleasure to join the inspiring team at Crayke as a Foundation Governor. I have two children, one at Crayke and a toddler. I am a Chartered Building Surveyor with over 20 years’ experience. Most of that time I have specialised in historic buildings but have dealt with a disparate range of property and many schools, which has involved seeing various aspects of many communities. As a family, we launched a manufacturing business 7 years ago, so I also have experience in the day to day and strategic operations of a business. As a Christian, I am excited by how the grounding and guiding nature of faith in conjunction with education helps everyone shine brightly.
