All about me!
I am originally from neighbouring Somerset I moved to Southampton to study History and Politics at Southampton University. Whilst studying I was chairman of the Southampton University Conservative Association. In 2007 I achieved a 2.1 BA Hons, but by now I had fallen in love with Southampton and decided to stay here and make it my home.
I was elected Conservative Councillor for Portswood Ward in May 2008. This is my first role as a professional politician, and one that I had to work particularly hard to achieve. None the less I have embraced the challenges that come with the role and feel that I have what it takes to continue to work hard in representing the residents and businesses in Portswood.
I have a keen interest in the values of the Conservative Party, and pay close attention to central party politics whilst balancing this with the commitment I have to my local residents.
When I am not hard at work in the council, I am a trainee teacher studying for a PGCE in a variety of schools throughout Southampton and Hampshire. As such the education of our children is something close to my heart.
I also sit on the followingComittees and Sub Committees of the Council-
Committees / Sub-Committees:
Healthy City Scrutiny Panel
Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership
I am indebted to the residents of Portswood who voted for me and look forward to exceeding their expectations and working for their interests.
