I have lived in Alcester since 2005 with my son Oli who attended Alcester Academy (formally the High School) and then the grammar school before going onto university. My professional background has largely been in the NHS in Coventry & Birmingham in varied managerial and clinical roles in the addictions and mental health field. I have also worked extensively with the police, probation and wider criminal justice system. For the last 7 years however, I have worked as a Clinical Researcher in a mental health trust in Birmingham and have several joint academic publications in Dementia care.
I am passionate about social and employment justice and am currently seconded to work at a regional level for my trade union campaigning and fighting for working people in a wide range of industrial sectors from automotive, financial , retail and health. In my spare time, I am a health activist and campaigner and am dedicated to ensuring that the NHS remains a public body, free to all at the point of contact.
I joined the council last year and currently sit on the Community Care committee and am hopeful that my broad experience in the health sector will contribute to the great work this town has achieved to date. I am committed to improving the health and well- being of our town and of all the residents that live and work here.
