Over the last 16 years I have made London and the UK my home. I have previously been a Special Constable (police volunteer) with the Metropolitan Police and I am currently a trustee of Working Chance – a London based charity supporting women ex-offenders into work – and Chair of an inner-London Academies Trust.
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.
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 Relations Lead for HP Inc.
