About me

I’m a big believer that we should all do what we can to help the local community.  


My family and I live in Chesham and I grew up in the area. It’s a great place to live and there are lots of young families. I would like to help make a difference and to do something positive for the next generation.  


In terms of my educational background, I have an undergraduate degree in International Relations & Politics from the University of Sheffield and I am a qualified solicitor. I am also a member of both the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.

I am an experienced communicator and led on aspects of Brexit communications for the UK Home Office. I then became the Private Secretary to the Immigration Minister before joining the UK Cabinet Office.
