After 20+ years working in retail fashion merchandising, ultimately becoming the Merchandising and Board Director for Charles Tyrwhitt, I decided to change career path.
Working in fashion I honed my business skills in a creative environment and decided to combine these skills with a long-held passion for gardening and train as a Garden Designer.
I was awarded a Distinction by Capel Manor College on completion of the RHS level 5 Foundation Degree in Garden Design and and Plantsmanship.
While studying I worked for the London based award-winning designer Karen Rogers and continue to work for her on a freelance basis.
During my final year of study, I and fellow student Lucy Glover were awarded a Silver Medal for our ‘Secure by Design’ Hampton Court Flower show garden.
