Governor's Personal Statement

Throughout Marie’s professional and personal life, she has been instrumental in improving outcomes for people in her community. Marie began her career as a youth worker in the Derbyshire Dales area and later qualified as a Social Worker working throughout Derbyshire. Before retirement she was Area Manager for High Peak and Derbyshire Dales, working closely with both Adult and Child health service providers. Marie also had a working knowledge of the Statutory and Voluntary sectors supporting the most vulnerable in the community. My work required me to work with and support families with varying degrees of problems including both physical and mental health issues, supporting families with children who have additional needs and parents and young people with substance abuse problems. In her public governor role, Marie is keen to continue contributing to serving our most vulnerable.
