Emma

I have joined WHWS in July 2015 in a capacity of a bookkeeper. In early 2016 another role was added to my job description.

Wearing two hats now of Operations Manager and the Official “Number Cruncher”, I contribute to the success of Women’s Health & Wellbeing Services behind the scenes.

In my free time (what’s that?) I enjoy reading, gardening, boating and just hanging out with my family.
