She was a nurse and a Councillor in the Vale of Glamorgan and Penarth Town Council and worked as an assistant to the current Cardiff South and Penarth Member of Parliament, Alun Michael from 1987-99. She was a member of the Welsh Labour executive and the National Policy Forum.

At the Welsh Assembly she is responsible for catering services.
