I AM married to Kevin and I have lived in the twin villages of Goring and Streatly for 39 years. I have a son and daughter, two stepsons and five grandchildren.
I served on Streatley Parish Council for 14 years and as vice chairman for about six years and have been on Goring Parish Council since 2005 with a break due to illness.
I was a governor of Streatley School for four years and a trustee of the pre-school for about 15 years.
I am a graduate of Nottingham University with an honours degree in social administration and teaching.
I have built and managed my own company for many years.
I think my record speaks for itself and while there is no party politics on our parish council, I believe a strong voice and representation for women is important.
