Personal History: When we launched Pinocchio's at Lasswade in January 1997 I had a wonderful time working in the baby room and I am HNC qualified in child care and education which gave me a great grounding and understanding of the venture we embarked on. As the company expanded, I took a leadership and operational role and now I support the management team, mainly in the areas of: accounts, forward planning for children's places, forward planning for staffing and over-seeing weekly schedules for strict staff/child ratios, updating nursery policies and procedure and health and safety risk assessments. I continue to keep up to date with training in first aid, child protection management level 4 and health and safety risk assessments. We are always looking at feedback from our service users on how to improve the service and love when we can implement new ideas.
Hobbies: Travel… Greece feels like a second home now, I travelled a lot as a child and got the bug… I love to plan our families' next adventure and explore different places around the world.
