Originally from Ashby-De-La-Zouch in Leicestershire, I learnt to play the double bass and enjoyed 3 years playing in the Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra. I studied classical music in Cambridge until I was 21 obtaining a Diploma of Higher Education. Deciding I preferred music as a hobby rather than a career, I tried a number of work opportunities. In 1999 I joined a small, family run estate agent in Cambridge. Since then, I have gained a wealth of experience working for both national and local agents giving me an excellent knowledge of the local rental market. I am a qualified member of ARLA and maintain my knowledge through regularly attending training events and conferences
I have been happily married since 2000 and have three step-children and 2 grandchildren (although they have all flown the nest). I love to socialise and have a wide group of friends. I have been secretary of my village social club and am currently treasurer of my local darts league – a game I have enjoyed playing for a number of years.
