Additional Information

I live with my family on a small organic farm at Canon Frome.  My two teenage sons attend John Masefield High School in Ledbury and play for several local sports teams.


I’ve spent 20 years working for charities and in higher education, including running health programmes for Christian Aid, co-ordinating a group of MPs in Parliament, tackling fuel poverty in East London, and supporting peace-building in Northern Uganda.  I have a PhD in international development, and I’ve worked at the Universities of Birmingham, Sheffield, and now Bath, where I teach part-time.


Locally, I’ve been a primary school governor, a volunteer with HomeStart and ECHO Herefordshire, and treasurer of a housing association.


My particular interests include transport, housing, and adult social care.
