Rhiannon studied Microbiology and Zoology in Aberystwyth, then joined the Inland Revenue as a graduate trainee Tax Inspector. Realising swiftly that her true interests lay in science, she returned to research at the University of Warwick, where she completed an MPhil in Microbiology. Since completing a Primary PGCE in 1994, Rhiannon has taught science in the independent sector, apart from a brief hiatus back into the world of scientific research whilst living in the USA. 

After 12 happy years at Ashford School, where her roles included Head of Science and KS2 Curriculum Leader, she sought a new challenge here, joining as Deputy Head of DL in 2013.

Rhiannon is married with two children and when she is not busy with her family and their various activities, she enjoys travelling, and has ambitions to visit South America, and in particular the Galapagos Islands.
