03 May 2012
I was elected as a District Councillor for the first time in May 2012, representing Woodford Ward . I have successfully balanced family commitments with a professional career, first working within the private sector as a Practice Manager in an accountancy firm in Northampton for 15 years, then in the public sector for 13 years at Daventry District Council. More recently I moved to the NHS sector and am now the Practice Manager at Danetre Medical Practice.

I am very active within my local community, having served as a Parish Clerk, and holding the position of school governor. I am especially interested in the young of the community.

My priorities as a Councillor are to:

Carry out all my duties in a friendly, sincere and open manner

Represent the interests of residents both individually and collectively within my Ward to achieve positive outcomes for them

Promote the maintaining of services whilst keeping DDC’s Council Tax level low in a difficult financial climate
