All of Rowan’s children are on the autistic spectrum. She is also the treasurer of Dore Parents Association, a charitable organisation whose remit is to raise money for the benefit of pupils attending Dore Primary School.
Tina was keen to join the DVS committee to help represent the views of young families in the area and to help establish links between the DVS and the primary schools.
As a mum to two young children and with a busy career Tina doesn’t have much spare time, though she does enjoy Sunday walks with her family, spending time with friends and wine!
