General Details (2015)
Occupation: Registered nurse, Noble’s Hospital
Previous political experience: While at university I got involved in local politics standing for the City Council Elections in 2006 and 2007.
Independent candidate: Yes
Political Affiliation: Conservative Party member
Why this candidate wants to be a member of the House of Keys: I feel I can bring a fresh viewpoint to politics on the Isle of Man, with a focus on transparency and accountability. As a nurse working in the health service I have had a unique opportunity to see first-hand the strengths and weaknesses we have, and identify areas for improvement. I believe the House of Keys would benefit from someone with a nursing background, especially at a time when the health service is under such scrutiny. I believe my broader awareness of, and interest in, issues that affect Douglas East and the Isle of Man will allow me to be a clear voice for the constituency.
