Me.jpg

I spent the first 10 years of my working life in London's West End in the ‘rag trade'. I worked for a couple of clothing design and manufacture companies and absolutely loved every minute of it. I worked in a number of admin based roles, from Sales Administrator to PA to the MD. This is where I gained my grounding in office support.

After leaving the fashion industry for a new challenge, I joined the client services team of a marketing agency.    It was my core organisational skills, along with my natural ability to communicate and build relationships that helped me forge a successful career that spanned several years and culminated in being posted to Beijing as Account Supervisor in order to set up a division of the agency I worked for. Here, I had to don whichever hat I needed at the time; marketing, HR, office management, project management, planning - whichever was required for the task in hand. This is where I became a true ‘jack of all trades' as it provided me with the experience of many tasks involved with running a business. After returning to the UK and having my son, I spent some time in a specific office management/HR role further expanding my knowledge.

Then a year and a half ago, I took a deep breath and moved to Dorset from London. ‘You're mad' they said, ‘aren't you brave' they said - no not really; I wanted the best of both worlds, and why not? I really believe you can have a full and rewarding working life without compromising your family or environment. It's all about balance and with today's technologies there is no reason why we can't find the right balance for our own individual needs.
