Meet the Committee
Hi, I'm Brittany and Mum to two children: a girl at Hanslope Primary School and a boy who began Pre-school last year. I have lived in Hanslope for 2 years and have loved getting to know the community.
I attended a Concurrent Education Programme at Bishop's University in Quebec, Canada. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Hons.
English Literature and a Bachelor of Education.
I am a former secondary school teacher with 9 years' of experience. I have also worked in the children's cancer charity sector, and I am now working for a local education technology business creating content.
I am hoping to bring my experience in the education sector to Hanslope Pre-school Committee. I am excited to be part of this team!
Hi, I’m Karen and have recently moved from Central MK to Hanslope.
My daughter attends Hanslope Primary School and my son is at the preschool, and loves it there!
Before raising our children I worked in the benefits team of a large accounting firm. I then went on to lead a team in the house building sector.
Nowadays my husband and I run our own investment business which gives me lots of flexibility to spend with our children and allows me to work on my passion of helping other children.
A bit about me, after A-levels, more years ago than I like to think about, I went to work for a marketing agency who deliver Performance Improvement programmes and large events for corporate businesses across Europe. This turned in to a seventeen year career eventually seeing me become a Client Relationship Director responsible for using motivational theory to help multi-national businesses achieve their goals through various mediums and for overseeing large conferences and incentive travel programmes all over the world.
The challenging role I was fortunate to have gave me a passion for travel, great food and working to help fantastic businesses succeed. I left to set up a consultancy helping businesses deploy incentive schemes which I did for a short while until I had our wonderful boys and took a career break.
We have two boys, both now attend Hanslope Primary School.
I’m originally from Hanslope and the village Pre-school holds a lot of history and importance for me personally.
I’m really enjoying being on the committee with a lovely group of people who all want to see the Pre-school thrive for many years to come.
I am a busy mum of two boys, Eli and Jack.
I have lived in Hanslope for 5 years now, and my husband has lived here for most of his life. He even attended the Pre-school.
I am thoroughly enjoying living in Hanslope, it has such a welcoming and inclusive community spirit.
A little bit about me.....I trained at Trinity College of Music in Greenwich, London and my principal study was the saxophone. I now work as a peripatetic woodwind instructor and currently work for Northamptonshire Music & Performing Arts Trust, travelling between primary and secondary schools in Wellingborough. I have a passion for music education and am keen to help support the pre-school as best I can.
I look forward to meeting you all, and am thrilled to be part of the incredible team at Hanslope Pre-school.
