I grew up in Barnsley and moved to London when I was 18 to join the police. After completing my training I worked as a Police Officer in South East London. I moved to Broomhill in 2013 and Dore in 2018 to be nearer to The Peaks where I love to walk. Since moving to Sheffield I have worked at Sheffield High School for Girls, University Technical College, John Lewis as well running my own pop up shop in The Winter Gardens and volunteering at Broomhill Library for four years. I am married with two grown up children.
If elected in May 2021 I will support and encourage local businesses and will seek to address their concerns. As a user of public transport I will work hard to ensure we have an effective bus service to tempt people out of cars and reduce air pollution. I am particularly concerned that we secure places for our children in local schools. I want to secure and support investment for projects that tackle loneliness in our community and mental health issues especially those affecting young people.
