My family live in Tonbridge and Malling. I work as a Psychologist and occasional lecturer at Canterbury Christchurch University. I have 25 years of experience working in mental health and prior to that 11 years working on poverty issues in the charity and non-governmental sector.

I see negative effects on the lives of young people and adults in the borough arising from poor planning, cuts to local services, and a lack of vision about what our residents and borough need in future. I believe that the Green Party is the only party that will fight the decline to our public services and prioritise what is important to residents rather than accept the ‘business as usual’ approach that the Conservative-led council currently operate on.
