I was born in Gorleston, Norfolk, and after three years in the army moved to London. I moved back to Martham in 2002 when I retired and have been involved with the Parish Council since 2004.  I am a very keen fisherman, and have a boat on the River.  I am keen to offer my time where it best serves the community, and as a Councillor am primarily involved in Finance and the Community Centre.

I’ve lived in Martham with my husband Matt since 2007 and run a local digital agency. I’ve spent many years volunteering as a digital champion supporting people to get online.  My role on the Parish Council’s communications sub-committee allows me to improve how easy it is to contact the council, have your say and take action.

I have had ties to the village ever since my daughter started primary school back in 2004. I was so impressed with the community spirit that when the opportunity arose, my family and I chose to move to Martham in 2014.

I have a keen interest in health and wellbeing, having previously studied both Biomedicine and Counselling.  As such I am also a delegate for medical provision and health matters.  I currently work in the oil and gas industry but also have a strong focus on the environment. I became a parish councillor in 2018
