18 years ago I made London and the UK my home. I have previously been a Special Constable (police volunteer) with the Metropolitan Police and a trustee of Working Chance – a London based charity supporting women ex-offenders into work. I’m currently Vice Chair of Policy and Resources Committee, Deputy Chair of the City of London’s Police Authority Board, Trustee of an inner-London Academies Trust and Board member of the iconic Barbican Centre. Outside the City I am Chair of the Board of Governors at the London Metropolitan University.

I studied history and politics at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

I am a member of the Ward of Cheap Club and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths based in the Ward.

Professional experience

I am a government relations and communications expert – having worked in senior positions for national and global companies based in the UK covering tech and consumer businesses, transport, security and equal opportunities. I am based in the City of London and currently work as Government Affairs and Public Policy Director for HP Inc in UK and Northwest Europe.
