I qualified as an Environmental Health Practitioner (EHP) 1999. Between 1999 and 2003 I worked in Local Authority Private Sector Housing Departments as an Environmental Health Practitioner where I specialised in housing.

I started working as a Housing Consultant in 2001 and left Local Government in 2003.

I have a BSc Hons in Environmental Health and a PG Dip in Housing. I am currently studying a PG Dip in Surveying.

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and a Student Member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors.
