I am a long-time resident of Hutt City. I have 2 adult children and 6 grandchildren. I am the Practice Manager at Lower Hutt Law Firm, Gillespie Young Watson/HomeLegal.
I have been involved with Hutt City Council for many years. I was a Central Ward Committee member from 2001 – 2004 and in 2004 was elected as a Central Ward Councillor. I served 2 terms in that role and also chaired a committee. In July 2010 I decided to step away from Council duties to spend more time with my family.
I always knew that I wanted to return and made a decision to stand for election in 2019 and was thrilled to be re-elected as a City Wide Councillor.
In my spare time I love spending time with my family. I love the outdoors whether it is walking, cycling or going to the beach. I am also an avid reader.
