I joined the BEA board in 2018.
I grew up on Broad Lane, Bramley and lived with my parents and brothers until buying my own home in Bramley in 1994. My father was also born and raised in Bramley, and I went to school there, so I have a strong connection. I now live just down the road in Wortley, with my husband, two teenage children and a variety of pets.
As a teenager I worked in Bramley Social Club, then after college I worked at Morrells Pharmacy on Town Street for a while, before securing work in the city centre. I went to work for Hanover after many years in a variety of administration roles.
Having been involved in older people’s services for since 2001 I am committed to enriching older people’s lives in whatever way is possible – through my work, on a personal level, and now through Bramley Elderly Action.
Every day I see first hand how hard BEA works to engage with and enhance the lives of older people and I am very glad to become a part of it and help make that difference too.
