When did you join iHASCO?
I joined iHASCO in 1995,
What do you do there?
I’m part of the Customer Services/Accounts team. I look after the admin for the office involving duties like customer services, accounts and anything else that needs taking care of!
What did you want to be when you were at school?
A vet until my father told me that I would have to put animals to sleep! I then wanted to work in an office as I loved typing and one of my favourite toys was a typewriter.
What do you get up to when you’re not at iHASCO?
In my spare time I love to shop, read and socialise. I also do a lot for the charity The Fountain Centre and we have quite a few fund raising events in the office for them. The Fountain Centre is a charity for cancer patients, their families and carers. When I’m not doing that I’m looking after my grandchildren and father... oh and I think I have a husband somewhere too!!
What’s your favourite food?
Any European food but I particularly love French and Italian cuisine.
What’s your Favourite Holiday destination?
I have recently been to Madeira and on my 1st visit I just felt as though I belonged. I felt a real empathy for the Island. I also enjoy Italy, France and Cornwall for somewhere closer... and I don't have to get on a plane.
Tell us something we don’t know about you…
I run a Breast Cancer Support Group. We offer advice, counselling and a huge range of complementary therapies in a calming and relaxed atmosphere. I also belong to a Breast Cancer Choir called Kindred Spirits although I cannot sing, it’s great fun and good therapy with all the laughing we do.
