About Me

My husband Mike and I have lived in Royal Wootton Bassett since 2008, when we moved into Touchdown House on the High Street with our combined family of ten children. What an adventure that was! Since then, all but one of our children has grown up and left home. We now live in Green Park, not far from the Academy and Jubilee Lake. I love local history and I have researched every old house in the town. I have written several books about Wootton Bassett one hundred years ago – you can find them in Moonraker Books on the High Street.

As a canal aficionado who has owned three narrowboats, I am uniquely placed to assist buyers and sellers of canalside property. I have loved canals ever since I went on a boat trip on the Regent’s Canal when I was 11 years old. I rented a hire boat with my best friends on the Oxford Canal when I was 18, followed by a memorable student holiday on the Canal du Midi. It was the beginning of a long love affair, during which I have owned three narrowboats. I am now a Canal and River Trust volunteer, and I help to run the CRT visitor boat ‘The Admiral’, moored next to the cafe at Caen Hill Locks in Devizes.

Selling? Why work with me?

I was an estate agent back in the 1980s, and although I later worked in publishing and archives, I never lost my passion for property. I started a canalside property website in 2018, and launched an estate agency specialising in canalside homes in 2021. I soon decided that it was the perfect time to join eXp. Now I’m on my own, but not alone. I benefit from belonging to a dynamic and cohesive team of agents across the UK, backed up by strong head office support.

You’ll deal with me in person throughout your move, from our first conversation to completion. I’m honest, straight talking, and direct, (it’s congenital with me!) and I always bring my unique brand of energy and enthusiasm to every sale. I have no fixed office hours, so you can contact me at any time, on any day. If I don’t reply in person, I’m probably driving, sleeping, or on the phone! Yes, I’m a little bit quirky, but I’m hard working and tenacious, and I assure you that I’ll do my very best to get you moving.
