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.

Relocated from Gray’s in Essex, February 2016, retired from working in charity retail, passion to empower people to become more involved in their community, and raise aspirations for all.   Most days you will find me and my wife exercising our very active young lurcher.  I also enjoy reading and believe everyone has a story to tell that’s worth hearing.

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
