I spent 27 years in banking and finance developing high performing teams, but I’d always wanted to work with children. I originally came to PATA as a learner and did every short course going! I started working in a setting, progressing to the Management Team and completing my Level 5 qualification.
During this time I joined the Board of Trustees of PATA until the opportunity arose to move into the Chief Executive Officer role. I’ve now been in this role since 2015 during which time we’ve taken on the management of 4 PATA Managed Groups and seen many other changes.
