I have a very varied life with many strings to my bow. My main ‘work’ role is EA to the Chief Exec of Citation Ltd which is a private equity backed business in Wilmslow. I have worked with my current boss for 6 years moving businesses with him as he progressed in his career. My first PA role was 20 years ago, starting out at AstraZeneca and from there I have worked for the Co-operative bank and LateRooms, learning the role along the way.
Along side my role as EA to Chris Morris, I am also the Chapter Admin for the Young Presidents Organisation Pennine Chapter, which is a global network for Chief Executives. For this role I support 47 Chief Execs by supporting the website, events, networking and training.
My main passion though is the Manchester PA Network, a non-for-profit organisation established to bring together like-minded PA’s, EA’s Secretaries and Support staff to create and build long-lasting business relationships and friendships whilst raining money for The Christie. We have currently raised £75,000 and have pledged to raise £100,000 by 2020
In 2015 we organised the inaugural Manchester PA Awards and we are now in the process of organising the awards for the third year running as the success has been phenomenal.
I am also lucky enough to sit on the board for EPAA, Executive and Personal Assistants Association. This appeals to my second passion which is to support and mentor PA’s coming into the business to help them achieve the best of their ability as well as raising the profile of PA’s across the UK.
Outside of my work life my ‘real’ job is mum to 4 year old twin boys and a 20yr old step-daughter. We live in Hale with my boys, daughter, husband, cat, Eric-Cat-ona and puppy Bonnie
