I moved to Devon over 15 years ago and began my teaching career at a mainstream secondary school before taking up a post at the Deaf Academy (then in Exeter) and later specialising in teaching children with special educational needs.
In 2015 I took the decision to leave teaching and become a carer for my deaf son. I am now back at work having recently qualified as a paramedic with the South-West Ambulance Service. With four young children growing up in the Exe Valley our lives are energetic.
I love living in Devon and am committed to serving the wider local community. Previously a firefighter, I have been a member of Dartmoor Search and Rescue Team, as well as a Community First Responder for the South-West Ambulance Service
I have been the Liberal Democrat District Councillor for Exe Valley since 2020. On the District Council I have served on a number on committees to represent the needs of residents in the Exe Valley.
