I was first elected to Parliament in 2015, as the first woman ever to represent Eddisbury. Prior to this I was a Member of the Welsh Assembly representing North Wales.
Before politics I worked as a criminal barrister and ran a farm in North Wales.
In Parliament I serve on the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Select Committee and I am co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Baby Loss. As a result of working with Alder Hey Children's hospital, I helped secure a £1.4 million grant towards their new counselling centre which supports those who suffer the loss of a child.
I am a passionate advocate for rural communities such as Eddisbury and regularly speak up for farmers on issues like the groceries code adjudicator, help with SFP claims and highlighting the impact of low milk prices on local dairy farmers. I have also been campaigning for better broadband access for rural communities and encouraging action to be taken to tackle mobile "not spots".
I live in Eddisbury with my husband and daughter.
