A bit about me - only the good bits!
Raised in the beautiful Cotswolds
Went to school at St Edwards, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. School motto 'Strive for the Best'

Started my own interior design business in 2004 with the help of the Princes Trust
I've been an operations manager for an international fabric wholesaler, Warwick Fabrics

I'm a Prince’s Trust Mentor for the Enterprise program. I'm featured on their website, read the article here.
Once a week I listen for the Samaritans. Freephone number 116 123 www.samaritans.org
Together with my friends Jaquie and Rupal I am involved in running a female entrepreneurial support and advice network called Professional Spring. We take it in turns writing a weekly blog based around Health, Wealth and Happiness. You can read the ones I have written here. And all of the others here. For the latest news and discussions about being a woman in business why not join our facebook group? (Sorry boys, its for girls only, thems the rules I'm afraid.)
I also have a little sub project BeGlad. It's in it's early stages but I want it to become a place people can go to view inspiring stories, where people have overcome adversity and ended up better off because of their struggles.
I also love art and design, if you'd like to see some of the print making I have been working on then click here
