I have been working in the Early Years sector for nearly 20 years. My passion and determination to offer the best in Early Years are what have guided me through different roles within the nursery sector. Previous opportunities have given me vast knowledge and experience, which I am passionate to share with my team to help support their ongoing learning and self-development to ensure we can provide the best learning opportunities and create memories for our little superstars.

I have been a volunteer for the British Red Cross (less now I have my children) for nearly 30 years’. I am frequently on the front-line offering transport and escort to and from hospitals for non-urgent patients, as well as providing medical cover at large concerts and events.

The skills I have learned in my time with them have been extremely transferable to my job, such as being a safeguarding trainer, having a high level of first aid knowledge and as an event manager I am able to take control of any situation, I am pretty calm in a crisis!

As a mum of 2 beautiful girls, I have a busy home life. But as a family, we enjoy camping, walking and a good movie night!

The Bright Minds family are all very dedicated to their roles, we pride ourselves on being the best we can possibly be. Being a Nursery Manager is not just a job for me, it’s part of my life, we are like one big family here!
