Originally from Hertfordshire, I moved to Corston with my family in 2007. I joined the Parish Council in 2015, was elected Vice Chair the following year and Chair in 2018. My career has mainly been in the public and voluntary sectors, spanning housing, regeneration, children’s services and organisational change. I have also co-founded two social enterprises and currently work for North Somerset Council. I have a particular interest in spatial planning, historic environment and online development.
