I was born and raised in Epsom and Ewell, and so I'm extremely proud to be a Borough Councillor for Horton ward and the association's Deputy Chairman. I've been involved with the association since I was 12 years old, campaigning in numerous elections and on a varying-range of issues across the Borough. I have been a local school governor since I was 19 - one of the youngest governors in Surrey at the time. My background is law but currently work in research - across multiple fields such as the environment and farming.
In my capacity as Borough Councillor, I sit on the Environment Committee; the Planning and Licensing Committee; the climate change working group; and numerous sub-committees.
One of the reasons why I'm proud to represent the residents of Horton is its rich history in mental health. Alongside many other family members who work for the NHS, my mum has been working for over 25 years at St Ebba’s Hospital and is one of the reasons why mental health and greater awareness for learning disabilities is an important topic for me and one that I want to push further. Something I have done in all organisations I have been involved in.
I enjoy rowing (not well but having gone to university in York, there was nothing better than rowing on the River Ouse at the crack of dawn while the sun was coming up), lacrosse and football - having spent countless wet and muddy Sundays playing for AFC Ewell.
