Welcome to a little corner of my world – I look forward to sharing some life experiences with you…
‘Do what you love with people you like’ is probably one of my favourite sayings and I’ve finally managed to bring it to fruition. I spend my days working in our gorgeous Somerset based businesses and love what I do, helping them to develop and understand their customers more.
Background-wise, I qualified as a Management Accountant and spent 15 years in the Manufacturing industry climbing up the career ladder to become Finance & Operations Director and tucking Management Buyout experience under my belt, I left to set up my own business after my second son was born.
Initially developing business plans and raising investment funding, I ended up becoming a non-Executive Director for a number of entrepreneurial businesses and enjoyed the pace and change of the businesses I was working with, I added coaching to my toolkit and learnt how to juggle multiple roles.
Now, the role juggling continues but with my own businesses, I have involvement at various levels in the following businesses :-
Specialising in the design and retail of country themed silver jewellery, I am pleased to be an owner and Director of this business.
|Doris & Co
I own Doris & Co – who we always talk about as a person! Doris helps you to find me-time and curates gorgeous products to help you enjoy it..
Dimpsey is a luxury shepherd’s hut retreat for couples, based on our farm in the Blackdown Hills, Somerset.
|Shepherd Hut Breaks
I do a lot of work based in and around shepherd huts, so this is a listing site and more.www.shepherdhutbreaks.co.uk
I run Dimmet with my husband, it’s a house that has been in our family for years. A 70s styled luxury experience taking you and your family back to a nostalgic seaside holiday.
|The Woodfired Garden
We love the outdoors and cooking over wood, with a wood-fired hottub and oven at Dimpsey – selling them was a natural step.
My manufacturing roots still run deep and I own this business with my husband – but limit my involvement to strategic and supportive advice!
