I’ve been working as a nutritionist since 1998 and have been Technical Manager at Dengie since 2003. My role combines technical support for customers and staff, product development, ensuring compliance with legislation and regulations and more recently, responsibility for Dengie’s environmental and social policies. I am ultimately responsible for the products and so I work very closely with the production and quality control teams too.
The main one was gaining a distinction for my Masters degree – that was really hard work as I was working full-time and studying part time for two years. Being the first winners of the BETA Feedline of the Year award in 2006 was very exciting too. I am also very pleased with the success of Healthy Hooves which was the first complete feed Dengie have ever launched – the feedback from horse owners has been amazing.
What’s the best bit about your job?
I love the diversity of the things I do – no two days are ever the same. Hearing how the products you’ve created are helping horses and their owners is particularly rewarding.
Hobbies and Interests
Sport, exercise and the countryside basically sum up my life! I am on the committee of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in East Anglia and enjoy helping my family show their rare breeds of sheep. Most weekends are spent cycling or walking and I have just started to share my husband’s enthusiasm for photography. I’m also discovering that I quite enjoy learning more about history too with the Tudor period my favourite at the moment.
