Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I'm crafty! I haven't bought a birthday/anniversary/good luck etc card in about 20 years, as I make all my own.
How has your career progressed since working here?
I previously managed an optical lab so the technical knowledge has come in handy. Over the years I have done various safety & first aid courses, as well as working and managing other larger branches, including helping organise a huge practice refit!
What do you like most about working for Duncan and Todd Group?
D&T is a great company to work with. Since the time we changed over, I have greatly appreciated the support from others in various departments. Both teams in Troon and Ayr are a great bunch of people to work with and have shown themselves to be vital in the ongoing success of the company, especially during covid and staff shortages - go team Troon!
What's your top tip?
Provide great service to all patients and customers. Always be courteous but have time for a giggle too!
