I was elected to represent the Bridges ward in 2006.

My family came to Gateshead over 30 years ago and I feel this is very much my home. My daughter attended Kingsmeadow School. I have two grandchildren and my grandson attends Dryden School. I have been a member of the Labour Party for over twenty years and am a member of the T&G Union (now Unite).

I have been a Cabinet Member since 2009 and currently hold the Portfolio for Children and Young People. I also support the Health and Wellbeing and Adult Social Care portfolios.

I sit on the Board of Trustees at the King James Hospital and I am also a Member of the Board at Gateshead CAB. I am a Governor at Eslington School.
