I hope that my background and experience will bring strength to Labour and that together, we will continue to make a difference where it matters the most.

I am honoured and delighted to have been selected as the Labour candidate to represent Pennsylvania at the election on 6th May 2021.

I have been involved with various community projects in Exeter since I moved here 15 years ago, including organising the Exeter Seed Swaps, free local arts events, and in 2015 I organised a well-attended rally against austerity. I was also a newspaper columnist for the Express and Echo covering community initiatives.

Pennsylvania is my home. I care about people, and for this area where I am raising my children. That’s why I am on the Sylvania Hall committee and have been a governor at the Federation of Stoke Hill Schools for two years. As I have a daughter in each school, I often hear the issues people here are facing, and I am excited to support the new Sylvan store initiative which I believe will help to build an even stronger community.

As an environmental writer with a background in science, I am passionate about green spaces and the impacts of the local environment on mental health and biodiversity. As a single working parent, I understand many of the challenges that people face on a daily basis because I experience them myself.

I have chosen and been chosen, to stand for the Labour Party because we share so many of the same values and because I have found that my voice as a woman of colour has been welcomed by this community.
