I was born in Leamington Spa and have lived here all my life. I have a good understanding of local issues and am familiar with the local area. I work for The Midcounties Cooperative as Head of Commercial Sales and Operations. As a member of the Leadership Team I am an ambassador for the Leamington and Warwick Regional Community. The ambassador role includes promoting volunteering in the local area and as a result it has led to me to work closely with Warwickshire CAVA and the worthy causes they support.
Midcounties is passionate about supporting local communities. In recognition of its social responsibility programme the Society has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Sustainment Development and has been awarded 5 stars (the highest possible score) in Business in the Community’s Corporate Responsibility Index.
Prior to joining The Midcounties Cooperative, I worked for a housing association that supported homeowners to remain in their homes by finding suitable funding for essential home repairs. I have also worked for the Law Society, Local Authorities and not for profit organisations. All of these positions have equipped me with valuable experience and knowledge in order to make a positive difference to the communities we live and work in. In my spare time I enjoy trying new recipes across all cuisines, they say practice makes perfect, needless to say I’m still practising!
