Career path to Antrim Enterprise

Following jobs in public relations and marketing, moved back to NI from Dublin in 1997 to take up the role with Antrim Enterprise and have never looked back (well hardly ever).

Why you love the role you do

As a creative person, I love coming up with new ways to support individuals into self-employment and along their entrepreneurial journey.

There is nothing better than a client re-visiting you 8-10 years after you helped them, to remind you of the piece of advice you gave them, which they still live by.

When you are not working what do you like to do

When I am not volunteering with Special Olympics and The Repair Café Antrim and Newtownabbey I love getting out walking.

Favourite quote you live by

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” It’s good advice for all of us.

What are you currently reading

My business read is Dave Fishwick’s Bank of Dave and my for fun read is a good old Cathy Kelly novel.

Something that people might not know about you

In a previous job I served drinks to members of Take That.
