After an education in East Anglia and Scotland, I first moved to Chichester in 1990 when I joined the National Rivers Authority as an ecologist.
I have lived and in West Sussex since then, working for a series of environmental public bodies.
My work has included the designation of protected areas as well as people’s engagement with the natural environment.
I joined the National Trust as a General Manager for the South Downs portfolio in 2010 and manage properties, teams and projects across 40 sites.
My daughter and son both attend Chichester High School. This is my first post as a governor.
