I am a teacher, activist and campaigner who has lived in neighbouring Chipping Barnet for 28 years. I began my working life as a Children and Families social worker in Barnet and Hertfordshire. I went on to train as an early years and primary school teacher, and have worked in a range of educational settings, in Shenley and Barnet. Completing my Masters in Specific Learning Difficulties (Dyslexia), I now work with children who struggle with literacy and am a member of the NEU. Since 2011, I have been a campaigner for Barnet’s homeless residents. As a founder trustee for Together in Barnet, the only local night shelter, I have worked to link over 20 community venues and hundreds of volunteers in order to ensure night shelter provision in the borough.
From 2015-2017, I supported refugees in the Calais Jungle through the L’Auberge des Migrants organisation.
Throughout my 29 years in the UK, I have worked with faith communities building cooperation and understanding, both as a member of Finchley Reform Synagogue and under the auspices of North London Citizens.
My passion for social justice and campaigning experience will bring real change to Hertsmere. I pledge to develop efficient public transportation, protect our NHS, deliver well-resourced schools, a clean environment that protects Green Belt land and truly affordable housing.
Hertsmere needs a candidate who believes passionately that, ‘Leave or Remain’, our community is at its best when we work together, when we share resources and look after the needs of everyone. I am the candidate who can unite Hertsmere.
We're a people-powered movement.
Be a part of it.
