In 2000 I graduated from Carlisle College with an HND in Business and Marketing, super keen to get out into the working world. Since then, I’ve worked in various marketing, events and business roles and in recent years have organised hundreds of weddings and events with a large amount of business development thrown in too. Taking my team to award winning status is definitely a professional achievement of mine.
I joined #TeamDA in June 2021 as I saw a fantastic opportunity where I can bring together all my past experience into one varied role. In addition, I was offered the opportunity to work part time. Finding fantastic, interesting roles that are part time is not that easy, so it’s refreshing to find a company that really values its people. The ethos of the whole team is really inspiring, and everyone is so very welcoming.
I currently work with the whole company to plan all our social media content, assisting with all the other various marketing activity as required. I am a gregarious person who can talk to people from all different walks of life, so my role really suits my personality. I love working within the marketing industry. It’s fun, there is always something new to consider and it’s always changing.
I am married with two teenagers and a dog. I spend my Friday evenings coaching (or attempting to coach) the Penrith Rugby Football Union Girls Under 15s. This is very challenging, but I feel tremendously proud that I’m assisting the development of our future adults. Something people may not know about me is that I am a qualified Homeopath and Holistic Therapist. I love yoga, anything alternative and all things psychology.
