Where were you born and how long have you lived in Hay?
Born in Newport, South Wales, where I lived until 4 years ago when I moved to Hay.
I started my working life in a hospital as a technician, leaving when my youngest son was born. After fulfilling a long held ambition of going to university I moved into my first Human Resources job. I have spent the last 25 years in a variety of jobs within the HR field, across a range of sectors including manufacturing, finance and higher education. I am currently working as a Human Resources Consultant /Project Manager.
Interests both within/outside Council:
I am very interested in how the council will deal with the transfer of assets from PCC and in the development of the Town Plan. Outside of the council I am Secretary of the Hay Community Woodland Group and on the Board of Trustees for Keep Wales Tidy.
Reason for joining the Council:
I had been attending council meetings as a member of the public for some time and was interested in the developments that were coming up for the town. When the opportunity for co-option arose I felt I had skills that could be put to good use and benefit the community.
