I was elected as Castle Ward Councillor in 2012 and between 2014 to 2018 I was first Deputy Mayor and then the Mayor of Hastings. Since 2018 I have been a Lead Member, currently with responsibility for Organisation – which also includes Equalities and Community Safety.
I moved to Hastings in 1998 and I have worked for Table Tennis England for nearly 24 years, currently as their Safeguarding and Ethics Manager. I am a single parent with 3 grown up children all living locally and a manic tortoiseshell cat called Molly.
Passionate about history and historic buildings, I am also a lifelong West Ham United fan (well someone has to be!).
