Sharon won her seat on the new Mid Ulster Council in May 2014, representing Clogher Valley.
Having worked in the NHS for 16 years as a General Nurse, Sharon is well aware of the need for increased funding to improve community health services in rural areas to address the inequality that exists. There is no acute hospital in Tyrone and the nearest one is 30 miles away. Sharon sees the need for improved Rural Community Health services as a priority.
The adequate funding needed for the development of the A5 road from Aughnacloy to Derry is an area Sharon sees as another high priority and will continue to lobby on this. This would contribute to prevention of accidents and loss of lives and support the many commuters using this road.
Sharon is married with three daughters and one son and a proud grandmother.
She is a keen runner with the Knockmany running group and has run in the Dublin Marathon.
Sharon obtained a BSc Hons Degree in Health & Well Being in 2012 and an Advanced Diploma in Health Promotion from the University of Ulster.
Sharon continues to work part time for Marie Curie.:: Back to People
