About Me:

I have lived in Misterton since 1995. I chose to move to this village in Bassetlaw after training, living, and working in London and Bedfordshire for many years. Moving to the area was like coming home! I was born and brought up in the West Country, in a small rural town, so I was already very familiar with the benefits but also the problems of rural communities: housing, transport, schools, access to top-quality healthcare and leisure facilities, and so on.

I trained as an occupational therapist and spent a considerable part of my working life in the NHS, to which I am passionately committed. I have also worked as a photographer and health journalist, and in health public relations. I am now retired after working for Doncaster & Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for 18 years.

I am a Governor at Misterton Primary & Nursery School and have close associations with Misterton's Parish Church. I have been a governor of Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals for six years, standing for a third term this year. 

I am married to Rick: in our spare time, we're cryptic crossword addicts. I try to go walking when I can - for three years, I raised money for cancer research by doing Race for Life. Since then, I have done a number of sponsored walks, raising money for the Labour Ward's family unit (2015) and Ward A4 (2016) at Bassetlaw Hospital; cancer care and the Parish Church's organ appeal (2017); and, most recently (a walk that started in 2018 and will be finished in 2019) for dementia care and our medical practice's equipment fund.

I have been a parish councillor for more years than I care to remember, and was chairman for nine. This is my third term as a district councillor. If anyone would like a copy of my election manifesto, please get in touch. I write a newsletter for residents three or four times a year, and have surgeries in Misterton and West Stockwith - so please drop in and say hello!
