Got you here under false pretences really as there’s nowt that interesting to tell about me…proud mother of two amazing grown up boys (one running his own business – Lettus Grow – and the other doing a PHD at Oxford), wife of a Welshman…
Graduated in Chemistry with Education from Bath Uni (where I met my long suffering husband – the Welshman!), worked for the Government for 10 years as an Analytical Chemist, got an MPhil along the way, then took a break to spend time with the family. Stopped myself going totally stir crazy by working the checkout line in Waitrose on a Sunday and volunteering – booking antenatal classes, organising nearly new sales and editing newsletters for the NCT, and then later on volunteering for Save the Children.
Four years or so on and I landed a lucrative role creating website content for a kids focussed website at the height of the dot-com boom, but inevitably after just over a year the bubble burst! Now working as Head of Marketing Operations for Global growing some of the biggest media brands in the country, and life’s good. How I jumped from being an Analytical Chemist to writing for a living, to working in marketing…well it involved a bottle of red wine and de-frosting a freezer, but it’s easier explained over a glass of vino, buy me one sometime and I’ll reveal all!
What do I do with my time when I’m not working? Love spending time with the family, crochet, knitting, photography, baking and making things in general – that doesn’t leave much time for anything else.
Want to buy me that glass of wine?! You can always get in touch here.
