Statement to voters

Lisa lives in the heart of Hazel Grove constituency in Romiley and is a keen community activist, volunteering as a trustee for the New Horizons Canal boat for disabled people and their carers and as a Director of Stockport Credit Union, amongst others.

A school governor for twelve years, Lisa is driven by improving education in Hazel Grove and beyond. Personally, Lisa graduated from Durham University with a degree in maths, and went on to get an MBA from London Business School.

Lisa is a Councillor for Bredbury Green & Romiley. Previously, Lisa worked as Chief Executive of an international development charity that provides education and resources for children and young people. Before that she spent 12 years working in international finance, which, along with her voluntary community work, means Lisa understands not only the difference made by the Lib Dem income tax threshold increase to people in Hazel Grove, but also how to make sure big business pays its fair share.

Lisa is the kind of person local people want to stand up for them in Parliament. Her energy and enthusiasm speak volumes but her proven ability to get things done is what sets her apart.
