Chair of South of the Borough Neighbourhood


Election statement 2014

I have been a Councillor in Kingston since 2004, serving the residents of Grove ward for nearly 6 years before being elected in Chessington South in 2010. Throughout my term in Chessington South I have been the Neighbourhood Chair.

I have lived in the Royal Borough all my life and now live back in Chessington South with my husband and 3 sons. I enjoy music and reading and spending time with my family. I have a degree in Politics and I worked in theme park engineering for nearly 12 years until the birth of my second child in January 2009. I now work for a local software programming company.

I have always wanted to be in local politics to be able to give back to the community that has always supported me.

Participating in the work we do on the Council for the borough that I have lived in, been educated in and worked in all my life is a very fulfilling job. I enjoy being able to make a positive difference to people’s lives by helping them with issues and feel there is still more we can all do to continue making Kingston a great place to live in.
