Head of Lakefront Early Years Campus

Head of Early Years

From a very early age, children were my passion and I aspired to a career that involved making a difference to young people’s lives. Having achieved an honours degree in Psychology (specialising in Child Psychology) from Loughborough University, I then decided to complete a PGCE in Primary and enter into the teaching profession. I taught in the UK for several years before embarking on an international career. My husband and I moved to Spain, where I taught in a British school for eleven years. During this period I became Deputy Head of School.


Whilst in Spain, my husband and I decided we wanted to adopt a baby from China. During the ‘waiting’ period we thought it would be a good idea to move to China for a year to learn more about the culture of where our future baby would come from. So, in 2008, we travelled to Guangzhou with the intention of staying one year and then returning to Spain. That was ten years ago!

After many years of waiting for a baby, my husband and I were finally matched with a gorgeous baby girl in 2011, who we named Rosie. Since then we have adopted a sister for Rosie, who is called Jasmine. Both our girls bring so much joy to our lives and we feel very grateful to be able to raise them in their native country. I love nothing more than spending time as a family, especially when we are hopping on an aeroplane to an exotic destination for a fun family holiday.
