Joined Carpenter Oak: 2011
Positive, friendly, and outgoing, I love meeting people and entertaining – that’s part of the reason I run an Airbnb business as well as working at Carpenter Oak. I like the fact that I can honestly say I enjoy working for this unique company with it’s friendly, highly skilled and eccentric workforce – although sometimes working with a majority male workforce is a challenge! I really enjoy the walk to work, it keeps me fit and I love fresh air. I’m a keen horticulturist running the garden here at the yard, and my own at home. I also manage and own an environmental land project of eight acres on the outskirts of the village. This is my passion and keeps me out of mischief. I have visited many countries and enjoy travel but love being at home in Devon with its amazing countryside, wildlife, rivers, moorland and fantastic coastline. I have lived in Cornworthy for 30 years, bringing up my family here. It is a wonderful place to live and holiday. I also make baskets and have just started ‘Irish set dancing’ which is great fun and keeps me fit!
