I have lived in the Wimborne Minster and Colehill area for the past 25 years and just love the mix of countryside and town that the area offers.
My working life was in Banking and Finance where I had a varied career including Finance, Audit and latterly I was responsible for the implementation of a number of Financial Projects. I left Banking for a better work life balance and having downsized my work commitments, I now feel that the time is right to put something back into the community. I believe that I am well placed to do this given my background.
I decided to stand for Town Council when my area of Colehill West was moved into Wimborne Town following the boundary changes in 2015. I felt it important that the residents had someone who lives locally and understands the area to represent them.
In my spare time I love walking and generally enjoying the countryside. I am a keen volunteer with British Eventing and was privileged to be an official at the Equestrian event at the London 2012 Olympics.
Having lost my Mum in the early pat of 2014, I have an interest in the elderly, their support and care and in particular the dreadful condition of dementia. I am hoping that I can make a real difference to the lives of many in the community.
I would be pleased to hear from residents regarding issues that concern you.
