I have over 10 years experience working in Early Years settings as a qualified Nursery Nurse and progressing on to becoming a Nursery Manager. After having a break from full time work as my daughter started school, four years on, now is the right time to return to what I enjoy.

I have always enjoyed baking with my daughter, as soon as she could hold a spoon the fun started! My daughter inspired me to look into Cook Stars as she has always said I should teach children how to cook, so here I am!

Cooking is a life skill and starting from an early age gives children a great head start in developing this lifelong ability. I find it very rewarding to help children to learn new skills and put them into practice independently. You will be amazed at the potential of what the children can achieve.

In my spare time when I am not cooking and being a taxi to my daughter, I enjoy an occasional run to keep fit and healthy, spending time with family and friends and I really enjoy relaxing spa days!

I am looking forward to welcoming you to my classes, workshops and parties, we will have so much fun!
