“I have a business management honours degree, but became an air stewardess for a number of years after graduating. I then took a career break for 5 years to care for my young children, and then returned to work as a conference organiser in Edinburgh which I gave up when I stood for the Council.
I am keen to see improvement works to Leith Walk and to stop privatisation of Council services.
