“I’ve served as a Town and District councillor since 2007 and I’m dedicated to this town of East Grinstead as I have lived here all of my life.

I live on the Stone Quarry Estate with my two amazing daughters Emily 14 and Daisy 10. I know what it’s like to have to make ends meet and I genuinely care about people and want to help.

I’m keen to listen and to express the views of the people I represent and I want to make the wisest decisions I can, because I’m part of this community. I feel it’s important to be involved and to strive for a good quality of life for everyone.

I am most fulfilled in my work when I can make a difference to a resident’s quality of life.”
