About Mandy

My love of wildlife is without doubt as a result of having an older brother who, when I was aged only 7 or 8, used to regularly whisk me off to Chester Zoo!  It wasn’t only the exotic animals that caught my attention though, I also have fond memories of walking with my brother in the beautiful Cheshire countryside looking at its flora and fauna.  I remember being amazed at how he knew the name of everything we saw!

I was never really sure what I wanted to do when I “grew up”, but following on from A-levels and an art foundation course in my home county, I decided to move to London for my university years where I studied Fine Art & Art History at the University of London.

Moving to Nottingham in 1990, I started working for the Boots Company in various retail marketing roles at head office.  This culminated in my role as Operations Manager for their baby business centre, a position which had a strong marketing communications focus.

As for today, well my love of wildlife has continued to grow. I am incredibly lucky to have traveled widely and seen some amazing wildlife. I am now in the fortunate position of combining that love of nature with a really varied role in a forward looking organisation.
