My background in catering has given me an excellent insight in to the world of events! I’ve had the opportunity to be part of the catering team in the Paddock at the F1 Monaco Grand Prix and even served the Queen as part of her Jubilee Celebrations. Working as Assistant Hospitality and Catering Manager at Burghley House allowed me to get involved in the running of both corporate and private events from team building days to gala dinners. November 2015 saw me heading in to the Pharmaceutical sector at Trinity which will be new to me and I look forward to adding value to the department through my knowledge of corporate events. Outside of work I love walking my black Lab, eating out and making homely crafts.

Senior Event Consultant

I returned to Trinity in 2017 as a Senior Event Consultant. I started my events journey at Trinity in 2013, before moving to Nottingham and working in a hotel event sales team. I then worked with another agency that focused on creative corporate events, before moving back to my hometown and returning to Trinity after becoming a mum. I have learnt a vast amount over the years; working for “the other side” within a hotel and with another agency has given me an excellent insight into the corporate event world from various perspectives and strengthened my skill set. Working initially on the venuefinder.com team when I returned to Trinity, which grew my knowledge in business development, I have since joined a team that look after one of our Key Accounts. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, reading, baking and playing in brass bands!
