Originally from Birmingham, my early career was as a Primary School teacher.
I signed up for Voluntary Service Overseas in Belize, Central America, and then took various positions in Costa Rica, Zambia, Netherlands, Venezuela and Sudan, before returning to UK.
I retrained as an Accounting Technician, and have recently retired from the accounts department in Bristol City Council.
I have previously served as a councillor on Chepstow Town Council and was Mayor in 2010 and school governor for both primary and secondary schools in Chepstow. Now school governor at North Road Primary School and member of Yate Rotary Club and the Womens Institute at Rangeworthy.
