Personal Summary

I founded Sussex Local Magazine in 2007 with a small amount of savings, and it has now grown to four editions serving 23,500 home in West Sussex. During that time my husband and I grew our family from just the two of us to a satisfyingly symmetrical four, so it has been a busy few years.

Just now getting back properly into the swing of things and looking to grow the business even further.

Professional Summary

After a spell working overseas as a travel rep, I continued my career in the travel industry in the UK working in reservations for a couple of niche tour operators who had chiefly European programmes. I became Marketing Manager for the second company and oversaw a £500k budget which included national press and radio advertising, brochure production and website creation (back in the days of HTML!) I also remember we were a very early adopter of Google Adwords - I think the budget was about 3p per click!

I started Sussex Local in 2007 with one edition, which has since grown to a very successful four. There are plans to expand further over the coming years, including a licensee/franchise model for other areas.

Interests

I like to keep fit and be out and about as much as possible, either biking or running in the South Downs where we live. Most of my time now thought is spent enjoying spending time with our two young children.
