My husband Giles and I moved to South Harting from London during the tempestuous year of 2020. I was very impressed by the Parish Council’s response to the pandemic and could see what an incredibly valuable support and mouthpiece it is to the people of Harting. I am now very proud to be a member of that Council.
After a career of nearly 40 years in technology, initially for IBM and Oracle, I, with two partners founded a executive search company in 2002, specialising in placing technology, finance and HR leaders in all sorts of organisations. Having built our company to over 70 strong, I retired in 2021, retaining an interest in encouraging gender diversity in technology by identifying and nurturing female technology talent.
Since we arrived in the village, I have taken on the role of Honorary Secretary to the Harting Horticultural Society and have enjoyed my work as a volunteer with Harting Primary School, reading with the Year 2s and helping set up the Gardening Club. I look forward to getting ever more involved with life in the Parish.
