Prior to entering politics, Angela worked in bBusiness for a number of large companies including Waitrose, Thorn EMI and Asda. She went on to become a company director before moving to Pembrokeshire with her husband and two young daughters.


Political history

Angela was first elected to the Assembly in 2007 with a majority of under 100. She served as Shadow Environment Minister, Shadow Transport Minister and Shadow Finance Minister in the Third Assembly as well as chairing the Assembly’s Finance Committee.


Angela was re-elected with an increased majority in 2011 and, for the duration of the Fourth Assembly, served as Shadow Education Minister; sat on the Children, Young People and Education Committee, and was appointed as one of the Assembly Commissioners which occasionally led to her deputising for the Presiding Officer in the Chamber.


May 2016 saw Angela once again increase her majority in Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire and, on return to the Assembly, she was appointed as a member of the Assembly’s Health and Social Care Committee. She was also given the role of the Welsh Conservative’s spokesperson on Health and Social Services.
