I have spent over 10 years in education as a compliance advisor for Data Protection, SEND and Ofsted which has allowed me to understand the particular issues faced by education, when processing personal data, whilst understanding the statutory requirements and issues faced by independent schools.
In 2017 the opportunity arose to step back from full time employment and I now work as an independent data protection consultant.
I have delivered GDPR courses for the ISA for the last 18 months as well as presented at the London & West regional heads meeting. I am passionate about supporting independent schools in the challenges that they face from the new General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018 whilst also meeting the existing Privacy in Electronic Communication Regulations.
I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) and hold the industry recognised Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/E) qualification from the IAPP.
