I am honoured to be selected as the candidate for North East Hertfordshire.

From setting up Cambridge Style Week, a major annual week-long event designed to create a platform for independent businesses, to supporting community projects and forcing changes to a dangerous roundabout, I have a good track record as a community campaigner and a reputation for getting things done.

I ran my own business for 10 years while raising my young family and working in the community, and now work for a housing association, building more homes in the region.

My work has shown me the real challenges our economy faces with Brexit. I know what reality is like for families in North East Hertfordshire, because I face the same challenges every day.

I am passionate about communities and would like to see a world where politicians take more time to really listen and connect with the people in their constituency.

I am committed to ensuring that meaningful consultation is carried out at all levels of government, and that elected representatives are open and available through digital means – as well as being visible in community.
