I am delighted to have the privilege of working here at Embercombe.
I had heard about Embercombe from a good friend in Birmingham who raved about the Experience Weekends and The Journey. Sitting in a gazebo overlooking a beautiful garden and woods, he told me about this amazing place. As he was describing what Embercombe meant to him, I could feel the inspiration and place that he held for Embercombe in his heart. I knew then that I had to go there soon.
And lo and behold… I saw the job advert in April!
I have worked in marketing for around 10 years, first in sexual health, marketing training services for a sexual health charity. I then worked at a Quaker study and conference centre in Birmingham. As someone who studied Russian at university, I am passionate about the beauty and power of language and I love to ground the strategic in practical, workable solutions. I have also just finished my training to be a counsellor, and am inspired by the work of building authentic and soulful relationships with others – whether people, animals or the land.
I recently moved with my partner and three cats from Birmingham to Exeter, where we are enjoying being so close to the sea and how everywhere in the city is walkable!
