Now living in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, I grew up near Bury St. Edmunds in England and when I was 18, moved to Leeds to become a student.
I graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a Bachelor of Arts with honours and became a member (and later a Fellow) of the Chartered Institute of Housing.
In 2006 after a lot of thought my partner and I moved to Nova Scotia in Canada.
Having worked in student housing in England, I now work for one of Canada’s top universities. I also volunteer for the Annapolis River Guardians, helping to monitor water quality on this important and beautiful waterway near my home.
