I qualified as a dentist in 1985 from Guys Hospital, London University – my first job was in Canterbury working for both the NHS and private sector whilst also completing a 2 year post graduate course in orthodontics.

In January 1995 I set up my own dental practice (Ashwater) in Wokingham, employing 3 dentists and a team of nurses and receptionists. In 2000 I took part in a 6-month postgraduate business programme culminating in the practice being awarded ‘Investors in People’.

I have an appreciation of State and Private education systems as I went to Yateley Comprehensive School and my own children attended Wescott Infant School. They then went on to Eagle House and Wellington College in Crowthorne. Patrick is now in his final year at university in America and Ella has just started at St Andrews University.

My husband Robert, who is from Zimbabwe, and I are involved with a Safari Business in Southern Africa which has a foundation associated with it. I am a trustee of the African Bush Camps Foundation in Zambia. Closer to home, I am very involved with the local area, having lived and worked here for many, many years!

I am a founder member of the Crowthorne and Sandhurst Rotary Club (1995). I am involved with the music charity Brass for Africa, which was set up by a Wokingham resident, and also support the Bracknell Cobras Basketball Club. I have been the Company Secretary for South Drive Residents Association for the last 7 years. If I’m not travelling, I enjoy playing tennis and love going to the theatre.
