B.Sc., Vice-Chair of the Board
Rosemary grew up in Wigan, Lancashire, attending Wigan Girls’ High School before moving on to Bristol University where she gained a B.Sc. Honours Degree in Mathematics. Staying on in Bristol after graduation, she began work in the insurance industry.
After she met her husband, also working in the same field, they set up their own insurance broking and financial services business based in Ammanford and Llandeilo. The business was eventually sold in 2001 after 26 years, and Rosemary was subsequently appointed Project Manager for the Dyscovery Centre, a multi-disciplinary Centre for people with learning difficulties, and part of the University of South Wales.
Alongside her work, Rosemary also volunteered for several years as a basic skills tutor with adult groups in Carmarthen, with a focus on mathematics and numeracy.
She was appointed to the Board of Coleg Sir Gar in November 2010 and subsequently appointed as a Director of Coleg Sir Gar Ltd. and then a Vice-chair of the governing body in January 2018.
