In her parental role, she chose Glenwood as the school where her son was educated. Further experience, which stands her in good stead for the job at hand, has been the role she has played in the leadership and management of the boarding establishment over many years.
She has been on the academic staff at Glenwood High School since 1997. She headed the History Department and served as a Head of Department for many years. For a period of 10 years she held the position of Deputy Principal and was appointed Acting Principal before being selected as the principal.
