Profile:

MY family moved to Sedgemoor when I was a child and started up a local business in a village, where we supported the community.

My husband is a “Mary Stanley” baby, and together we support our children’s interests: especially when it’s time for them to perform for the carnival concerts.

One of my first jobs in catering was for a business on the British Cellophane site, including Sydenham Manor that we now see peeking through the trees next to the Sydenham Campus.

My corporate experience in facilities management for a global software giant provided a great opportunity to experience the IT trade.

I am a campaigner for Inclusion and Accessibility, after our special care baby later struggled with an autism spectrum condition and his brother with epilepsy.

I enjoy raising awareness and helping as a Trustee to focus on housing and mental health needs. For six years I have attended meetings that focus on different councils’ duties for education, health and social care.

The plethora of new housing developments happening in and around Bridgwater is an opportunity bring forward transparency and challenge the growth of our district to ensure the voice of our communities are integral to the developments of building, road safety, travel, open spaces, tourism and businesses.
