Working as a broadcast journalist for six years, Rebecca has interviewed all kinds of people, from the First Minister to those with personal stories of suffering such as homelessness and mental health.
Rebecca grew up in Kent and London, before moving to Manchester to study Theology and Sociology at university. After working in London in sales and property, Rebecca did a Masters degree at City University in Broadcast Journalism.
After completing her degree, Rebecca worked in business and political news for radio and television for many respected broadcasters, including CNBC, Sky News, BBC Radio 4 and LBC.
Rebecca moved to Scotland in 2014 and freelanced as a journalist before starting full time at Kingdom FM in Fife in 2015.
As News Editor for Kingdom FM, she has spoken to many people who feel let down both by the complacent SNP and Brexit-obsessed Tories. Brexit was the motivational kick she needed to put herself forward to stand as the candidate for Glenrothes.
Rebecca had enough of sitting on the side lines watching the Tories and SNP put the interest of their members ahead of the whole country. Having previously been a tactical voter she first started supporting the Liberal Democrats at the time of the AV referendum in 2011. First Past the Post has led to too many people being disenfranchised, and so Rebecca supports the introduction of proportional representation in all elections, including to Westminster.
The Liberal Democrat manifesto is the only one that truly confronts complex issues. The policies on Syrian refugees, mental health and cannabis demonstrate a commitment to an open, tolerant and united society. Only the Liberal Democrats can deliver a pro-UK, pro-EU Britain that gives hope to future generations.
