As a child, I was taught not to really talk about politics.

In 2019 I joined the Green Party, and in late 2020 made the decision to take a career break in order to get more involved and stand for local election. In 2021, as the Green Party candidate for the Oxfordshire County election for Shrivenham, I increased the Green Party vote share from 7% to 40%.

I am now Chair of Oxfordshire South and Vale Green Party. We have a small, but growing and brilliant team working across the two districts and supporting our Green councillors – please do get in touch if you’d like to know more.
