About me

I was brought up in Lower Parkstone from the aged of four. I have lived and worked in London, Southern Africa, the Middle East and North America in nursing, midwifery and health visiting. With a master’s degree in Public Health I now work as a senior health visitor, leading professional development in one of Poole’s most disadvantaged areas.

I have worked hard to promote good health throughout my career, and spend my spare time off-road biking, paddle boarding, playing squash or running with my dog, and making the most of all the wonderful amenities that surround us here in Poole.  

My priorities

  • To create opportunities for Poole’s economic development, ensuring local businesses have every chance of growth and success. This is about pursuing potential investors and other economic facilitators to seriously look at Poole’s long-term offer.
  • To protect and enhance Poole’s natural environment. With highly sensitive and protected heathland all around us we must work with other relevant agencies to keep it well maintained and enable good access for people to enjoy, but in a way that respects its need for protection.
  • To continue to enable a wide range of local outdoor events and activities that bring the people of Poole together, enjoying and making the most of our open spaces that belong to all of us.
