I live in a farmhouse on the hills above the town of Todmorden. For the last year I start the day by mucking out the stables of my two donkeys Ted and Sunshine. I also have 5 sheep, 2 of which were born this year. I share the house with a friend Mandy and our dog Hedy Lamar. I've recently become a part time student studying hand weaving an old industry in these part parts. Before that I set up an organisation which aimed to increase the number of women in science, engineering and technology occupations.
I trained as a mechanic in the 80'sand ran and owned a garage with two other women for five years.
