In 1918, women got the vote for the first time. Jennifer was fascinated by the human stories behind this hard-won political victory and subsequent wins that shaped our islands fortunes. Progressive moves throughout this century, often pioneered by Liberal Democrat policies, have influenced the development of a fair, free and open society.
Since joining the Libdems in 2016, Jennifer has been consistently active; initially during the 2017 Mayoral campaign, then going on to serve as vice chair-rural in the regional executive. Jennifer organises and runs regional training events where Libdems from across the region come together to network and learn knowledge and skills to assist them in their numerous roles.
Jennifer believes that Britain’s unique diversity has helped to make our country highly successful. Our Liberal values have influenced countries to improve human rights. Our immigrant waves have brought new skills, cultural influences and new ways of seeing the world. Jennifer believes in individual liberty, equality for all and strong, local community. She is a board level director at her local community association and runs two successful online communities.
Three years ago, our country took a turn towards a tumultuous Brexit. Since then, Jennifer has campaigned to raise awareness of the damaging consequences of a bad deal or no deal Brexit, recently joining friends and colleagues on the peoples vote march in London.
Jennifer has a professional background in HR and fifteen years’ experience in the automotive sector. She currently specialises as an associate trainer, working for companies across the country to improve business performance. She is parent to three wonderful children, aunt to two special nieces, and married to Marketing Director and fellow LibDem - Jonathan.
