Why did you decide to become a Board Member of Antrim Enterprise & what does your role as a Trustee entail?

I had some exposure to the work of Antrim Enterprise through participating in a few of their courses- I had spare time and some knowledge and thought Antrim Enterprise could use these to develop their own skills.

For anyone considering starting up what advice would you have for them?

Give it a go! There is a wealth of advice, experience and assistance at Antrim Enterprise to prepare you and help overcome hurdles. You never know until you try!

What are the main issues and barriers facing developing businesses today?

Lack of a working executive at Stormont! It has a knock-on effect on grants/subsidies for projects supporting start-ups.

Life outside current job/position on AEA board

I am a busy mum of three and a taxi service to all! I volunteer with Pastoral Council and Young Enterprise Primary Programme. I enjoy reading, cooking (and eating!), exercising and travel.
