Angela lives in Pembrokeshire with her husband and two young children and considers herself to be a countrywoman with a metropolitan heart. Angela was brought up in various countries throughout the world and when she left school her interest was caught by the world of business.
Like many people Angela has espoused single-issue causes, particularly homelessness. This was very dear to her heart when she was living in London and for a number of years she used to visit the West End as part of a team, offering food, clothing, advice, contacts and practical help wherever possible.
In recent times Angela has become very involved with local issues in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, particularly the proposed downgrading of the two District Hospitals of Glangwili and Withybush, the endless closures of rural schools with the subsequent fragmentation of the communities they served, and the apathy and lack of hope of so many youngsters.
Angela was elected as the Welsh Conservative Assembly Member for Carmarthen West and Pembrokeshire South in May 2007. Angela has served as Shadow Minister for Finance and Shadow Minister for Regeneration and Transport. She was appointed Shadow Minister for the Environment and Planning in February 2009 and regained her seat in 2011.
