Joined Carpenter Oak: 2016
When not in the yard, what do you enjoy doing?
Rowing over to Salcombe with the family for a breakfast of hot, fresh pain au chocolat from the bakery and a coffee at Captain Morgans.
If stranded on a desert island, which three people would you take and why?
Don and our two kids, ‘cos I love them – can Sprocket come too? From work – Don – it would be mad not to, plus he’s super practical, Jono – he never sleeps so can keep us safe from beasties, Sarah – she’s amazing in the garden so can help us grow food.
What is the most embarrassing job you have ever had?
Daniel D Lion, Dancing on Ice. Loads of fun, but being dressed in a big fluffy lion costume is just embarrassing.
What music do you listen to?
Anything and everything depending on my mood, I just Spotify it.
What is the best comedy film ever made?
Cool Runnings – feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme!
What do you enjoy most about working at Carpenter Oak?
Always the people, but it’s also nice to see all the different jobs people do and how that contributes to the entire business
Do you have a favourite quote?
Be who you are and say how you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those that matter don’t mind – Dr. Seuss
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Home – I live in an amazing spot. I love to travel but home is pretty hard to beat.
I’ve been hovering around Carpenter Oak since 2002 when Don joined as a Carpenter. The guys took us under their wing and welcomed us into the Carpenter Oak family. Since then Don and I have gained a few more wrinkles and produced a family of our own. I’ve contributed a few photographs and attended some shows whilst freelancing but I’m now an official member of the team, tasked with copywriting and communications. Carpenter Oak has a great work-life ethos, people’s health and happiness is important to them, they allow me the flexibility to work around my home-life and children.
