Team / Department: Society, Events & Show Team!
First and foremost, which do you prefer – Tea or Coffee?
Tea – milk, one sugar please!
Favourite thing about working at the Bath & West?
As we get closer to the Shows, each day is always so different. You could be sat at your desk one minute, then on top of a cherry picker putting up ceiling banners the next! Everyone mucks in and helps one another out. It’s nice to have a bit of variety and work with such an amazing & hardworking team of people!
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
I would love to do my wedding day all over again – and the honeymoon too of course!
I love to get creative in my spare time, and often upcycle second-hand furniture for my home. I really enjoy sewing too & have spent most of the last year making my own hair accessories which I sell on Etsy. I also LOVE being outdoors and enjoy spending time in my garden (attempting to grow my own veg & flowers) or going Camping in our VW Campervan, Trev.
What would be your career highlight?
I did a 12 month Internship with the Event Team at The Walt Disney Company Head Office in London which was such an amazing experience! I had the opportunity to work on lots of high-profile events, including the Harrods Christmas Light Switch On & Christmas Parade, and the Iron Man 2 Film Premiere in Leicester Square.
