Welcome to the Scottish Parliament website. It's an honour and privilege to represent the Almond Valley Constituency, particularly as I was born, raised and educated in West Lothian. I became MSP for this constituency following the election on 5 May 2011, having previously represented the Livingston constituency between 2007-11.
The Almond Valley constituency covers Addiewell, Bellsquarry, Bents, Breich, East Calder, Fauldhouse, Kirknewton, Livingston, Loganlea, Longridge, Mid Calder, Polbeth, Pumpherston, Seafield, Stoneyburn, Uphall, West Calder and Wilkieston.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any assistance. I will do my best to help in any way I can.
Prior to my election in May 2007 I worked as a social worker / mental health officer and was a local councillor in Livingston. I am now a mother of one son and I am enjoying immensely the challenges of motherhood and politics.
