About Me

Jane was elected to parliament in December 2019 with an outright majority and a majority of 7169 votes.

She lives in Quorn, in the constituency where she has lived since 1995.

Before entering politics, Jane worked in commercial business for 15 years, later moving into the civil service and charity work. She worked for the previous Member of Parliament as her caseworker in Loughborough for nearly 10 years.

Jane is married with two adult children. Both were born at Leicester General Hospital and went to school and college locally.

Jane is a Borough Councillor for Charnwood Borough Council and until her election was the Honorary Secretary of Loughborough Chamber of Trade and Commerce. She was a Trustee of Loughborough Welfare Trust and the Clarke and Somerville Education Foundation for over 20 years. She was also a school governor at Garendon High School for over 10 years.

Jane gave her maiden speech in the House of Commons on 20th January 2020, referring to all parts of the constituency and how they work as a team. Her hashtag on social media is #TeamLoughborough to show how we all work together for the good of the area.

In February 2020, Jane was honoured to become a Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Cabinet Office and was subsequently promoted in September 2021 to PPS to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. In July 2022 she was again promoted to a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (Minister for Small Business, Consumers and Labour Markets). 

While Jane is pleased and grateful to have been promoted whilst in office, she considers this a means to promote Loughborough at a higher level within government and does all she can to support the people of Loughborough, Shepshed and the villages to the very best of her ability.
