Jayne was born and raised in Sheffield where she lived for most of her life. She has a son on the autistic spectrum and a daughter.
Professionally, she runs a business raising awareness of Asperger Syndrome and advocating for those on the autistic spectrum, and has previously worked in helping those with mental health problems into employment.
Jayne cares deeply about the NHS and is concerned about what will happen to it under the current Conservative Government. Mental health services are a particular concern, as not nearly enough is being done to help sufferers and more resources are needed nationwide. She believes the NHS needs modification but would be safe if the Liberal Democrats were in control.
She joined the Liberal Democrats in 2010 after hearing Nick Clegg speak in Sheffield, although she has liberalism in her DNA!
Since then Jayne has built extensive campaigning experience, standing as a council candidate in 2010 and 2011 and she helped to run the diary/ appointments for the Parliamentary candidate in Chesterfield in 2015 and organised several Action days. Jayne also worked alongside Sheffield Liberal Democrats to help Nick Clegg retain his seat in Sheffield Hallam.
Jayne decided to run for Public Office shortly after The European Referendum deciding she had to step forward to enable people to vote for a Pro-European candidate. Jayne is now the Lib Dem PPC for Rushcliffe and will bring her pro-European stance and Rushcliffe’s need for affordable housing at the forefront of her campaign.
