Originally from Cambridge, I moved to West Cumbria in 2013 and have lived in Eskdale with my husband John since 2014.
I currently work as a Knowledge Management Consultant for Arup, a global multidisciplinary consultancy firm. I support businesses and organisations to ensure the right people, are getting the right information at the right time, using the most efficient tools and techniques.
I am also a Chartered Town Planner and before joining Arup, worked for Copeland Borough Council, and other local planning authorities, across community regeneration, development management and planning policy disciplines.
When I’m not doing the day job, I am walking the fells, gardening, jewellery making, reading, writing (huge fan of Royal Mail), swimming, going to gigs, visiting family and slowly decorating the home. I am also a regular at the weekly Bower House quiz.
I have joined Eskdale Parish Council as I want to help make a difference in the community. I want to support Eskdale to continue to be a beautiful place to live, work and have fun. Protection of the natural landscape is really important to me. I believe my passion, experience and background will help to add value to the great work
already achieved by the Parish Council.
