Welcome to the Scottish Parliament website. It's an honour and privilege to represent the Livingston Constituency, particularly as I was born, raised and educated in West Lothian.
The Livingston Constituency includes; Livingston, East Calder, Wilkieston, Kirknewton, Mid Calder, Bellsquarry, Polbeth, West Calder, Addiewell, Breich, Stoneyburn, Pumpherston, Dechmont, Uphall, Broxburn and Ecclesmachen. 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.
