I started working in the publishing industry 19 years ago as a graphic designer with a small contract magazine publisher in Darlington, producing magazines for the likes of The De Vere Group, The Young Solictor's Group and various regional branches of The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. After gaining some experience I joined Primas Media in 2002 as Production Manager overseeing the editorial and design teams.
With a lot more, hard won experience under my belt I moved up to become Managing Director in 2012 meaning that whilst I still keep my eye on production I also take care of finance, strategy and the people that work for us in a HR capacity. In short, I attempt to make sure the company continues to navigate a true course by making sure that all hands are both happy and busy!
Outside of the office I'm a busy mum which usually means either ferrying my daughter to and from the stables for her horse-riding sessions or getting my son to and from the footy. It never stops!
