Isabel has lived in Stevenage for over 35 years, moving here for her first job as a social worker. Recently retired, she spent much of her career in Children’s Services, working for Hertfordshire and in neighbouring authorities and London boroughs. Her work brought her into contact with many families facing challenges and difficulties and she saw how important to people's lives are housing, schools, local services and the environment in which we live.
Isabel has two grown-up sons who were born at the Lister in Stevenage and went on to university from Barclay School; they remain loyal Boro fans.
Isabel is a keen walker and has favourite routes from home out on to STOOP, the Stevenage outer orbital path. She thinks that it's important that we keep our connection to nature, valuing the importance of green spaces and parks in town and easy access to the countryside for those who want to walk or cycle further.
Like our home, our town ideally nurtures us. It offers opportunity, space to grow and confidence to succeed, at home or further afield if that's the path we choose. It provides an identity, a sense of connectedness and freedom to move away or stay.
