Burns was from an English family and brought up in several foreign countries. She went into business after leaving school, working for companies such as
Waitrose, Thorn EMIand Asdaand becoming a Director of some other companies. She later moved to Pembrokeshirewith her husband and became active in politics.
In recent times she has become very involved with local issues in Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, particularly the proposed downgrading of the two District Hospitals of Glangwili and Withybush, the endless closures of rural schools with the subsequent fragmentation of the communities they served, and the apathy and lack of hope of so many youngsters.
She defeated the sitting Labour Party member
Christine Gwytherby only 98 votes, and Plaid Cymru's John Dixon by 250 votes, in a very close three way contest in the 2007 Assembly election. She is the Conservative spokesperson for finance.
