What is your background and role in IR?
For 16 years prior to IR I worked with children and adults with learning difficulties having achieved all I could within that role I felt the time had come to face a new challenge. My role in IR is one of the Client Manger team. I like to ensure that members maximise their membership as much as possible with regular contact and discussions on how to benefit from the network.
What have been your highlights since joining IR?
After a warm welcome to the IR Group I have enjoyed developing strong working relationships with IR members via the phone and face to face at our conferences.
And what are your passions outside of the office?
A keen photographer, I have been privileged enough to capture some of my friends most important moments at weddings and christenings but horses and all things equine remain my true passion. I enjoy horse riding, travelling with my husband and walking with our Border Collie, Skye who also keeps us company at the office.
Finally tell us something unique about yourself?
I have a fear of escalators so it does take me a while to step onto them. I have to count four steps before I do, weird I know.
