I started with Urquhart’s in March ‘22 having worked in Optics for 9 years previously. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them get the glasses that they really love.

What is your favourite brand of eyewear and why?

Cocoa Mint; I just love all the bright colours and find there are shapes and sizes to suit everyone

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Most of my time out of work is spent with my three boys. We enjoy hill walking and hiking as a family, most recently having climbed Ben Lomond together.

Where is your favourite holiday destination?

Orlando. As a family we absolutely love anything Disney and Harry Potter, we had an amazing time exploring all the parks.

What is your favourite movie or book?

My favourite book changes all the time but most recently I have enjoyed reading Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

One interesting fact about yourself?

I have been part of a number of charity fundraisers but in July 2021 myself and 2 colleagues completed a Skydive, raising over £2000 for R.N.I.B (Royal National Institute for the Blind)
