I have lived in the Forest of Dean since 1987, having moved from St Albans in Hertfordshire. I trained as a physiotherapist including the treatment of children, and people with all types of disabilities.
I also took a degree in Ergonomics when I realised that treating people when things go worng is only half the battle. I also needed to correct postures and practices which can increase the chance of injuries.
I am interested in politics and have been a local councillor on the Forest of Dean Council. At present I am Chair of Governors at the Heart of the Forest Special School at Speech House, a job I enjoy very much. I am also a Trustee at Forest Sensory Services, a facility and resource centre for people with sight and hearing problems, Another of my interests is as a board member and volunteer of the Co-Operative which governs Mitcheldean Community Library.
I love working on the board of The Orchard Trust which I joined in 2011. It performs very important functions, and there are so many interest interesting things going on there.
