I am a married mother of three young adults, a grandmother and dog owner.  My favourite past times are walking in the countryside, exploring historic towns and real ale.

Professional background

I have worked in a variety of jobs while raising my family most recently working as a postwoman and prior to that as a post office clerk. I lived in Italy in my early 20s.  I have organised community events, charity fundraisers and produced the local newsletters for the last ten years.
