I lived and worked in the UK until late 2006 when I relocated to Charlotte with my husband and three daughters. For 15 years prior to immigrating to the US, I was the business manager of a mid-sized chartered accountancy practice in the north of England. My husband was offered the chance to relocate to Charlotte with his company and we saw this as a wonderful opportunity for ourselves and for our girls who were 18, 15 and 12 at the time.
I went to university in Leeds, England and have a BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance. My first job in the US was managing the finances of a NC magazine publisher before joining the school in March 2011.
I love living in Charlotte especially because I love being outdoors either watching sports, walking or gardening. The weather here in Spring and Fall is so beautiful.
My favourite football team is the USC Gamecocks and I try to attend all the home football games.
Travelling is also a big passion and we are planning over the next ten years to visit as many US states as possible. It’s a big country!!
Together with my husband and three daughters we passed the citizenship test in July 2013 and we are all very proud to be US Citizens.
I love working at this school because it has a very personalized approach to the students, parents and staff.
