Karen Cowdrey

Office Manager

I joined the Parents Federation staff team in 2003.  Prior to joining the Parents Federation I was volunteering with the Vale Volunteer Bureau (VVB) in the administration department.  Whilst volunteering with the VVB I was chosen to attend a reception held by Mr & Mrs Blair at Downing Street in December 2006.  The reception was in recognition of voluntary work and I was very proud as I was one of 20 people chosen in Wales to attend.

My role within the Parents Federation is Office Manager.  I organise and supervise all of the administrative activities that facilitate the smooth running of the office.  I keep the databases up to date and am usually the first person that you will speak to if you ring the office.  I assist with organising meetings and events.  I  have recently been attending social gatherings in the Vale and have been gathering feedback for quarterly reports.

I have 3 children aged 18, 16 and 3.  I am currently learning to speak Welsh and passed my Mynediad exam in Summer 2014.
