I began my working life in the advertising sector. After several years I moved into television, then formed my own company specialising in international advertising sales and event organisation. During my career I've worked with many interesting people and organisations from all over the world, including international charities, authors such as Roald Dahl and HM King Charles III - a wonderful opportunity I feel very privileged to have experienced.

I have lived in the Mole Valley area for 28 years (8 in Brockham and 20 in Newdigate). I love living here, and feel that our beautiful countryside and the diversity of wildlife that flourishes here are such assets to our communities.

When I moved to Newdigate, the friendliness and warmth of the welcome I received really blew me away. I became a member of the village church, joined several local groups and started my own recreational singing group. I can't claim to be a good singer but it was always a lot of fun!

My daughter attended Newdigate's superb village infant school and was blissfully happy there. I became a school governor for 8 years - an incredibly rewarding time. I was also on the pre school committee during my daughter's time there - and have since worked on the committees of several other village organisations.

I love this area and I'm delighted to serve as a Liberal Democrat councillor. I want to protect and promote the smooth running of our area and will work hard to ensure it continues to be a great place to live for everyone.
