I have lived in Tattenham Corner as long as I can remember, and have grown up attending local schools, using local transport, and enjoying the beautiful green spaces this area has to offer. This makes me fully invested in local issues and has given me a good understanding of how local councillors can contribute to our community.
Since graduating from Nottingham University, I have helped set up a brand new gin distillery just down the road in Ashtead, launching a brand new company against the backdrop of a global pandemic. Starting a new venture in the last couple of years has been a huge challenge, and I've seen first hand how supportive our fantastic local community has been.
My priorities are your priorities, including protecting our amazing green belt, working to improve local transport links, and ensuring that the large planning applications being proposed in this ward are consistent with the needs of local residents.
