Prior to living in Asia I worked for Cambridge International Examinations, which is a division of Cambridge Assessment, as Deputy Group Manager for the Exams Data Management team. I worked for Cambridge Assessment for 22 years, and four years ago my husband and I made the decision to move to Asia after he secured a teaching role at the International School of Koh Samui. Whilst there I continued to work for Cambridge International Examinations as an Examinations Inspector for international schools in Asia. This role has enabled me to travel to many different countries including Brunei, Laos and most recently Kuwait, to name but a few. After two great years on Samui we moved to Vietnam where I continued to work as an exam inspector. Two years on and we are here in Bangkok, which I absolutely love. My husband started working at St. Andrews Intenrational School Bangkok as the ICT Teacher and I was fortunate enough to be offered a role within the School Office.
To keep fit I love to run, and since moving to Bangkok I have started running in Benjakiti Park. I also do Yoga and enjoy a variety of sports including badminton and netball. My husband and I have travelled extensively in Asia and love to go on holidays that involve activities such as trekking or snorkelling. One of the highlights when living in Vietnam was doing a three-day motorbike trip along the Ho Chi Minh Highway and through the mountains to remote areas and villages.
Before moving to Bangkok we had heard great things about St. Andrews from a colleague who had previously lived in Bangkok, and the school certainly lives up to this reputation. There is a strong sense of community here and the school has created a great learning environment for students. One of the most important factors at the school is that they want all students to be happy and at St. Andrews the students genuinely are.
