I am a mother of two boys and I have lived in Bedford for the last 26 years. I love Bedfordshire and I think it is a really nice place to bring up our kids.

I am involved in an organisation called Our Minds Matter where we sign post people towards First Aid mental health training. I particularly like this topic as I like to help people who suffer from mental health.

I’ve worked for Bedford Hospital for 19 years and I am now working at MSK on Kimbolton Road. I won the Care And Compassion award in 2017 from Bedford Hospital as well as the High Sheriff Award in 2018 for my work in the community.
