I was born in Liverpool Fairfield in 1958. I attended St Sebastians school on Lockerby Road in Fairfield. As a family; mum, dad, sisters and brothers we moved to Wales, Rhos on Sea, when I was nine years of age. I attended Llandrillo yn Rhos school. As a child, I loved all what the seaside had to offer. Alas at eleven years of age and due to unexpected events, we moved back to Liverpool.
I had my first job in Ethel Austin at 13 years of age and attended St Margaret Clitherow School, Ullet Road. On leaving school, aged fifteen, I found a job in a supermarket called Discount Foods in the Tuebrook area of Liverpool. After the supermarket closed down, I then worked in the Odeon Cinema as an usherette and also worked a season in the Isle of Man. I also became a qualified Comptometer operator.
Missing living in Wales so much, in 1983-84 I moved back to Wales to Deganwy. Then after a short time there in 1984-85 I moved to and settled in Llandudno. I had various jobs from room assistant, waitress cafe work, reception, bar work, retail and also as a Lab technician. I also worked in America as a nanny/au-pair.
I moved to the Tre Cwm Estate (Tudno Ward) in 1992 and went on to have two children Carina and Daniel. I have volunteered in the community for over 25 years from being a volunteer at a drug rehabilitation unit in Colwyn Bay and as a mentor. I was also a volunteer at my children’s school Craig y Don and also at Tudno school. In 1993, I became a founder member of the Credit Union and I am also a founder member of Ty Hapus and Ty Llywelyn community centres.
I currently volunteer at Ty Llywelyn Youth Club, the RVS and Llandudno Football Club and of course I am a voluntary Town Councillor, having been elected onto the Town Council in 2008. I am a qualified youth worker and play worker. I gained a degree in Public and Social Policy plus a level three qualification in Health and Social Care. My full-time work now is as a full time carer/home support worker, which I really enjoy.
