Mobile Telephone No:

I am a farmer and businesswoman from Walton on Trent. After gaining an HND in Agriculture from Harper Adams Agricultural College I spent 10 years as Group Secretary for the National Farmers Union. Following this, I returned to my childhood home and have run and developed my farm, including repurposing redundant farm buildings into environmentally friendly, high-specification offices; personally, undertaking all the planning activity and project managing the construction and commissioning.


I have extensive experience of working with the Countryside Stewardship Environmental schemes, achieving Higher Tier status through conservation activities. I am passionate about the environment, biodiversity and working on behalf of residents to protect our greenspaces, safeguard our villages, gain better healthcare provision and I am dedicated to nurturing and protecting the countryside. As District Councillor I have facilitated meetings between the local rural community, the NFU, and the Police to help improve communications and resources to tackle rural crime and flytipping.  


I was elected as Seales District Councillor in 2019 and have been re-elected as District Councillor following the 5th May 2023 election and I will now continue the work I had begun, acting with enthusiasm and diligence in representing Seales Ward and South Derbyshire as an Independent Councillor. Please feel free to contact me.
