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 in 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.
Favourite Quote'I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
