After reading Politics at the University of Durham, I helped launch the first Development Programme at Millfield School, before moving to join the University of Oxford over 15 years ago. Having worked at both Magdalen and Brasenose College, it was at St Catherine’s College (Catz) where I found my true home at the University, where I was a Fellow and Director of Development for nearly a decade.
It was the strength of the Dragon community, unique amongst Prep-Schools, that really drew me to the School, finally joining in 2019. As Director of Development and External Relations, my role is to ensure that we continue to build relationships with our community to help ensure the School continues to thrive into the future. A series of events, communications and fundraising appeals underpins our efforts and I am always keen to hear from members of our community.
Away from my desk, when I am not consumed by family life with my husband and young twins, I like to cook and read. My favourite literary heroine is Jane Eyre, reading Kahil Gibran is my version of therapy and every January, I re-watch the West Wing TV series.
