This is my second time living in Qatar, having returned in 2009. I am originally from Kent in the UK, but have also lived and worked in Hamilton, Scotland.

In April 2015, I came back to our Gharaffa Campus as School Secretary, after four years of working at our Madinat Khalifa campus. I love being back at Gharaffa, it feels as if I have 'come home'. It is a busy job and no two days are the same. Primary children certainly keep you grounded and on your toes! 

I have three children and five grandaughters. I don't have much time for hobbies but like to spend time with my family and relax by reading and solving puzzles. I also love cooking!
