Q. What are your day to day job roles at Silk Group?
Making sure that all orders run smoothly, sending quotes to customers , purchasing goods from suppliers, invoicing and general day to day office duties. I also manage our ISO’s (9001 & 14001).
Q. What do you enjoy most about working for Silk Group?
Everyday is different at Silk, I can speak to a customer one minute and then be on the phone to a supplier the next. Each day you will be faced with different challenges, which can sometimes be a little stressful but it keeps you on your toes.
Q. What do you do in your spare time?
I have 2 little Lakeland terriers, Pip and Mo who love going out for walks. I also have 5 grandchildren with another due in early November so sleepovers at Nana’s are always on the cards.

Beaches……..I’ve watched it so many times
Q. What music do you listen to?
I love Motown and Soul, my all time favourite is the delicious Luther Vandross……yummy.

I would love to ice skate in Central Park, New York
