I am married, have two children at school and have lived and worked in and around Wimborne Minster for many years, including 8 years at East Dorset District Council.
I have a background in Project and Programme Management which means I love a challenge, especially looking for efficiencies, so hope to add value and make a difference at the Town Council.
I was also a Financial Adviser right here in the High Street and went on to be a Bank branch manager for a while.
My most enjoyable position was as the Manager of Wimborne BID (Business Improvement District). As I worked closely with the business community, charities and other local organisations – including the Town Council, I became aware of how rewarding it is to get involved in your local community.
I helped to set up our very own Radio station – Radio Wimborne, where I now present live shows each week. This is a great opportunity to get the word out there about our fabulous town. See ‘The Town’ tab for more information.
During my Mayoral year 2018/19 I shall be recording a BLOG about what it’s like being Mayor and Chairman of the Council, you can access that here.
