Teresa Heritage

District Councillor for Harpenden South & County Councillor for Harpenden South West

About Teresa

I was born in Middlesex, but raised and educated in Hertfordshire. After A-levels I joined Lloyds Bank, but after a year decided to take a Senior Secretarial Course at the City of London Polytechnic. Whilst at the Polytechnic I took my Part 1 qualification to become a Chartered Secretary. I achieved my final qualification in 1981 and became a Member of the Chartered Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators. I worked for a major FTSE 250 company in London for nearly 30 years where I became the Assistant Company Secretary. In 2006 I was made redundant and joined a firm of Company Secretarial and Corporate Governance Practitioners, on a part time basis. I am fortunate that my part time contract allows me to carry out my County and District roles.

I have been involved in politics since my teens and met my husband in the Young Conservatives. I was elected to Harpenden Town Councillor in 1990 and served as Town Mayor from 2000 to 2001. In 2001 I was elected to St Albans City and District Council.

I am married with one son who is a social worker in a mental health institution in Birmingham.
