About Me

The majority of my career has seen me immersed in rural life, I have held numerous roles in the country leisure and pursuits sector, and it is an area that I am both confident in and deeply connected to. In the early parts of my equine career, my experience ranges from the riding school and racing yards, in which I completed an apprenticeship, achieving an NVQ Level 3. In more recent years I have been based at a busy competition livery yard, where I started as groom and progressed through to head girl. Alongside this role, I am currently studying Level 5 Equine Nutrition, a topic I am very passionate about and hope to incorporate within my future in the equine industry.

I am a dedicated professional, who works hard to understand and respond to the social cues of others, a skill that allows me to quickly form professional bonds and achieve the best results in my business relationships with both new and existing customers.  I am a quick and astute learner, who is good humoured when circumstances allow yet sharply focused, and task orientated when the situation requires.
