A Little Bit About Me

I am forty something. A passionate foodie. A spreadsheet fanatic. A chatter box. A lover of new ideas and old style traditions. I thrive on a challenge.

I now have 30 years in food and retail under my expanding belt, from working weekends in local shops through my teenage years, to large corporations suchas John Lewis Partnership, Premier Foods and Safeway, and latterly with smaller award winning start ups like Moorish (Humous and Dips) and Man Meat Fire (BBQ Sauces and catering). All amazing. And all unique in their own way.

I have genuinely enjoyed every role I have have undertaken and have thrown my self into them 100%.

So with my many years tucked away and having worked in most FMCG categories; Fresh, Frozen, Grocery, BWS, Bakery etc etc I bring to the table a wealth of ideas, experience, tenacity, resilience, patience and positivity.

Merchandising, Point of Sale, Packaging Design, Presentations, Data Anlaysis, Competitor Analysis, Category Analysis, Market Research, Invoicing, Deliveries, Supply Chain, Finding new customers, Marketing, Social Media, Account Management, Business Reporting, Recruitment, sourcing, New Line Forms, Barcodes, Recipe Creation, In Store Sampling, Door to Door selling, Space Planning...

Having earned my stripes in Retail Inc, I am flying solo offering my knowledge and time to those who need me as your Girl Friday. One day at a time.

I can't wait to hear your story.
