She is also a qualified aerobics and riding instructor. She has worked in all these areas and also as a Director and co-owner of a PR and Advertising Agency.

Since retiring Fiona has concentrated on her work as a Councillor, first as a Town Councillor for Brackley and then as a South Northamptonshire District Councillor.
