I am really proud to represent our brilliant local area.
I am a mum of two, and I have recently helped to care for my elderly parents through their ill health. I studied Politics at University and was the first person in my family to go, suffer the debts and succeed as a result of the opportunity!
I served as a Councillor for almost 6 years and know what it takes to make a difference in the Community. I was pleased to achieve a lot in my time as a Councillor.
I have worked in a variety of fields in retail, hospitality, but mainly media, events and communications. Most notably for the AA, BBC and the Police. I most recently worked in Road Safety alongside the Police and their Partners, where I helped reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads. That was a job I truly enjoyed, making a difference in the community and this outcome really matters to me.
As your MP from May 2015, I have been absolutely focused on delivering for the Eastleigh Constituency, both in making sure our green spaces are not concreted over and in delivering important reforms at Westminster.
I am in politics as I care about people, community and doing what is right, and know this understanding and commitment is really important in modern politics. I do pride myself on speaking my mind and standing up for all those who need assistance.
I am continuing my record of hard work, community action and reaching out to those who feel disconnected from politics
My priorities as your local MP:
1) To get real action on the road systems, traffic flows, motorway noise, pedestrian safety and pollution concerns across the area.
2) To continue to campaign for cheaper parking in Eastleigh in order to help, support and champion a thriving town centre.
3) To make sure the local plan comes forward and to fight at Westminster for appropriate infrastructure, whilst also battling to retain green spaces and a good quality of life.
I am truly committed to making Eastleigh even better and I will work tirelessly to support our fantastic and varied Community.
