Three Words that describe you:

Open-minded, Energetic, Reliable


I am a true family girl - in my spare time I love spending time with my family. When I'm on my own, I enjoy reading or going for a run!

Proudest moment in your career:

Supporting an ex-student throughout their last 2 years at Ashton. Helping them and seeing them grow as a person and having the confidence to leave school and achieve just exactly what they wanted to!

Ambitions for your house:

For students to come together to make new friends and to try new things! I'd love for the students in Park to be confident enough to explore and give all competitions a go, remembering that they get house points for trying!
