Amy graduated from university in 2002 with a degree in Educational Psychology. She spent a year gaining work experience in schools before doing a Primary Teacher Training PGCE at St Mary’s in Twickenham which she completed in 2004. 

Now qualified, Amy applied for teaching jobs at a few local schools and was offered several posts. She decided to take a position at Kenmore Park Infant School in 2005 where she taught Reception and Year 1 for the next 7 years.

During her time at Kenmore Park Amy met Gerard. They were married in April 2011 – and Louise (her sister in law) was one of her bridesmaids. 

In July 2012 Amy had a daughter, Mia Faye. Amy went back to teaching in September 2013 only to leave her again in 2014 because in March along came daughter number 2, Sadie Rose. 

Amy started working at Polka Dot Planning in February 2015.  Her previous experience of teaching and herding very young children has been hugely useful in her new role.
