I have had many roles within Promar International which has enabled me to build an in depth knowledge of the company, build working relationships and provide a financial service.
Previously I worked for an arable contractor. This experience helped to develop my crop and machinery knowledge. I began milking cows at age 16, whilst doing my AS levels, and spent a year as Chairwoman for Wells and Glastonbury Young Farmers Club in 2013.
At the University of Reading I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Agricultural Business Management. I worked at the Centre for Dairy Research, milking and feeding cows during my time at University.
My current job role has allowed me to invest a lot of time in creating and developing coded excel spreadsheets, as well as mentoring Junior Colleagues – both big achievements!
Outside of work I enjoy unaffiliated Show Jumping with my Warmblooded Gelding “Ghost”. I also breed and show Welsh Terrier Dogs, I have had many successes at Championship shows across the UK and numerous placings at Crufts.
