My key responsibility within the company, as Office Manager, is to ensure the smooth running of the office and our business systems.  I have been working long enough to have witnessed the advent of the PC and worked through the “Big Bang” in the 1980’s.  Having had my family I began working for Tim in 2001 and am still here!

My 5 favourite things:

  • My husband and my three gorgeous boys
  • Living in North Devon
