I am a 36-year-old, local girl, Rutherglen Maternity born and Cambuslang bred. I live here with my husband, daughter and dog. Graduating from Caledonian University in estates management, I have established myself as a surveyor with a niche in retail property, which is part of the reason I became interested in politics as I was heavily involved in planning, rates and regeneration with a specialised interest in revitalising high streets.
I am passionate about the area and I am an advocate for local issues, especially now that I have a young child. Growing up in the area I have been a member of local clubs and associations throughout my life, where I have been a keen participant in a range of local activities within the community. I look forward to seeing the area flourish in years to come.
