I was elected to serve as a Ripley Town Councillor in 2015. As well as the Town Council, I also serve on Amber Valley Borough Council. I have lived in Ripley most of my life, currently residing in Marehay with my family. I attended both primary school and secondary school in the town, before going onto study politics at the University of Nottingham. Being raised and educated in the town, I feel that this gives me a good understanding of the key issues and concerns affecting the electors of the town.
Most of my career to date has been spent in the business support and access to finance environment, supporting the growth and expansion of small & medium sized businesses. Currently, I work for a small not for profit company in Nottingham, providing business support advice to businesses in the bioscience sector. Prior to this, I spent time 3 years working for Nigel Mills MP, undertaking case work and dealing with issues raised by constituents.
