I was educated in Hertfordshire. My early working life was in a bank but in the 1980’s I qualified as a Chartered Company Secretary. I worked for a major FTSE 250 company in London for nearly 30 years rising to Assistant Company Secretary and Deputy Head of Investor relations. Redundancy in 2006 took me into the world of corporate consultancy but in 2007, having been an elected member of St Albans City & District Council since 2002, I was approached to seek election to Hertfordshire County Council.
Since becoming a County Councillor in 2008, I have served as Deputy Executive to Highways and Transport and also Health and Adult Care. In 2013, I joined the Cabinet as Executive Member for Public Health and Localism and this year I also took on responsibility for Libraries.
In my Executive capacity I chair the Hertfordshire Armed Forces Community Covenant Board and The Hertfordshire Lifestyle and Legacy Partnership. I am also a member of the Hertfordshire Health and Wellbeing Board.
I am a member of the NICE Local Government External Reference Group.
