In 1987 I gained my NNEB, after college I worked as a nanny for various families, until I had my first child in 1993. Being married to a member of the Royal Air Force I was able to move around the country and work in various settings gaining lots of valuable experience. Having settled in Oxfordshire I was able to take a position as a Nursery Practitioner in 2002 at Daffodil Nursery.

During my time as an employee of the nursery I managed to work my way up to a management position. This allowed me to be in a position to take over the business when Mrs Gibson retired. Since then we have tried to maintain the same level of care Daffodil Nursery has always provided.

Being a parent myself to two children, who have now moved forward into their own careers of a nanny and serving sailor, I am now able to put all my time into the nursery.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, having spa weekends and attending concerts.
