I live in Guildford and have two married daughters and three grandchildren.
I worked at Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust from 1984 to 2013. Here I was a medical secretary for consultant pathologists, radiologists, orthopaedic surgeons and oesophago-gastric surgeons. I also ran a local private orthopaedic practice for 5 years and have experience in Public Relations/Communications in the corporate, public and charity sectors. I gained a Postgraduate Diploma in Strategic Management from Kingston Business School in 2004.
Currently, in addition to being a Royal Surrey governor, I am a member of a GP practice’s patients’ participation group and am a Council member of the River Thames society.
I enjoy singing and am part of the Vivace Chorus.
