I have lived in Southend for 20 years having moved here with my family to work in the NHS.  In 2003 I trained to teach and worked in three local primary schools until July 2016 when I was made redundant.  Since then I have looked after my amazing grandson while his mum and dad work.  I have a few volunteering roles, including being a governor at a Thundersley school for children with moderate learning difficulties. My life and work experiences mean that I will be a committed and effective representative for Leigh on Southend Council.

I re-joined the Labour Party in August 2015, served as Southend West Treasurer for two years and, in July 2019, was elected (unopposed) as Vice Chair Membership.  I stood as council candidate for West Leigh in 2018 and in Leigh ward in 2019.

I believe we are privileged to live in a rich country and area but the increase in inequality and levels of poverty – especially as these affect the present and future for our children, young people and carers – and the carelessness of our behaviour towards our planet lead me to be an activist.
