I’ve worked in advertising for over thirty years, the majority of that time was spent working for a local newspaper and radio station. Ten years ago, I took the plunge with my partner Geoff to publish our own magazine titles. I have lived in Wolverhampton all my life and know the area very well; this knowledge has been invaluable to the success of the magazine.
Following the success of Wolverhampton West magazine, we decided to publish a magazine in the Stourbridge area called Town and Village Life.
I quickly realised that running a business was challenging but also very rewarding, especially when receiving positive feedback from advertisers and readers.
I have always enjoyed meeting new people so the sales side of the business comes very natural to me. Over the years I have met some lovely clients who have become really good friends.
Out of work I enjoy keeping fit by going to the gym, a bit of ‘girly’ pampering, nails, facials and getting my hair done and of course eating out.
