About MeI am a mother of two and have a passion for fashion. I have worked in retail since the age of 18. I thrive in my role because I love people! There is nothing more satisfying than being part of your clients journey in finding something that makes them feel fabulous!
My favourite thing to do is be on holiday with my family in a hot sunny climate - preferably by the beach reading a good book.

About MeI’ve been part of the Jane Davidson team since 2005, but have known Jane and Sarah since 1982, when I returned from 4 hazy, crazy years in London.
Fashion has been my life since leaving art college, in one way or another…Modelling it, buying it, selling it and wearing it!
I do love Edinburgh, but I have caught the travel bug, so you’ll find me jetting off at the drop of a hat. Just give me a load of sunshine, a glass of bubbly with great friends and family, and I’m a happy bunny.

About MeI have been fortunate enough to have worked in the luxury retail industry for over 25 years. During this time I have managed a designer boutique and worked with some amazing labels and people. I have also worked with a fabulous team in a Personal Shopping Department in a major store.
Being able to work with luxury items really makes you appreciate the way these pieces are made and how good they can make you feel. I really enjoy putting my knowledge and creative eye to use helping men and women look fantastic.
I would say my own style is quite eclectic , my favourite designers are Lanvin, Dries Van Noten, Marni, Queene & Belle and Stephanie Laird to mention a few (but the list could go on and on.) Flowers that put a smile on my face are peonies and hydrangeas. My favourite brunch is Eggs Benedict and a glass of prosecco.

About MeI have wanted to dance my whole life and started when I was 3 years old. I left school to train professionally for 3 years and I have recently graduated. I love everything to do with fashion and discovering new styles. I like having my own style, standing out from everyone else. Family means everything and I get a lot of inspiration from my Grandma (she is a style queen!)
