Katharine recently joined the committee of MAHM. She has been a member for the last ten years since becoming a mother and finds it a great source of support and inspiration. A trained teacher and mother of four she believes strongly that education and family are the bedrock of our society and need to be given the highest status. This should mean supporting motherhood publicly as well as financially to allow all mothers the choice to stay at home and parent their own children. She has hosted weekly gatherings for stay at home mothers and their pre school children for a number of years and is now chair of the PTA for her children’s school.
