Sarah joined the team in November 2014 after driving past our premises on several occasions waiting for an opportunity to join the team as " it seemed like such an interesting place to work."
She previously studied Product Design Bsc at The University of Northampton, completing her 1st year before deciding to take a gap year to travel, which is still on going 10+ years on....however, her love for design and all things creative are still strong and is why she wanted to work here, putting her back into that environment.
When Sarah isn't in the office she often heads over to America to watch her favourite Nascar driver's race, is tinkering in her new garden or heading out to catch a bit of local Cricket (she used to be a county player!)
