I began my teaching career in my thirties after completing an Open University degree during my years as a Secretary. Every day teaching was different and there were fantastic ups and a few downs but I ended up teaching in the Ashburton Estate a walking distance from home. However, even nearer to home is my present job; teaching teachers of the future as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Roehampton.
As a result I have now worked in Roehampton for 10 years and have lived in Roehampton for 17, being married to Jim the Vicar of Holy Trinity Roehampton.
I understand Roehampton through my many contacts; friends, parents, the congregation of Holy Trinity and students I now teach. I also believe there is a lack of fairness in Roehampton compared to other areas in Putney which I aim to address. Education is my field of expertise and I would like to see all children have a fair start to life!
I am a local mother of three young children, a qualified barrister and part-time lawyer focusing on human and employment rights, cyclist, keen baker, amateur musician and volunteer. I’m originally from Northern Ireland, having attended school there. I came to England at 18 and settled in SW London after University, in large part because of how welcoming the area is, and its many beautiful, green open spaces. I'll work hard to continue to make Roehampton a fantastic place to live work and visit.
