I have lived in Chelmsford for over 35 years and Chelmer Village for 18. I was born and educated in Edinburgh.
I was a Primary School Teacher in Scotland, Birkenhead, and a local School and then an Educational Adviser for Chelmsford Diocese.
I have always been involved in the community; I have served as Governor in a primary and a secondary school in Chelmsford. I am Social & Fundraising Chairman for Chelmsford Cathedral; A Springfield Parish Councillor, and a trustee of Chelmer Village Hall.
I was a Chelmsford City Councillor and had the honour of being Mayor of Chelmsford from 2018 to 2019; also a wife, mother and grandmother.
