Additional Information

I was elected to the Council to represent Deckham ward in May 2016. I have lived in Gateshead all of my life, attending Harlow Green and Joseph Swan schools before studying at Northumbria University and the University of London.

I have been a member of the Labour Party since 2010 and currently work for Gateshead MP Ian Mearns, having previously worked as a copywriter. Within the ward I am a governor at South Street School, sit on the management committee at the Millway Centre, and am a trustee at the Deckham Community Centre.
