I have worked at Wolds Optical since 1995. I began in the surfacing dept before gaining experience in every area of the business, becoming company director in 2012. Outside the family business I am an on-call Firefighter in Driffield and in my free time I like to go fishing and cycling and spend time with my family.
I have worked in the optical industry for the past 17 years and started in the glazing dept before qualifying as a dispensing optician in 2008 and becoming company director in 2012. When I am not at work I spend time with my family, especially outdoors. I also like to keep fit, and particularly enjoy mountain biking.
Lab Manager
I have been lab manager here since 1996 and have worked in the spectacle manufacture sector for more years than I’m willing to admit to. I love to travel with my family and friends and I consider myself to be a connoisseur of real ales, having sampled over 1500 different varieties of beer from around the world.
Customer Services Manager
I have worked at Wolds Optical since 1999. Based in customer services, I manage all our customer accounts and I have experience of working in the laboratory. Outside work I love spending time with our 2 children and do a lot of charity work fundraising for our local pre-school and Driffield fire service.
Customer Services
I work full time in the customer service department which I’ve done for over 20 years. When not at work I am an avid Hull City fan and hold a season ticket so my husband Phil and I go to as many home and away matches as we can and have travelled abroad many times to see them pre-season.
Customer Services
I have spent time working in all areas of the Wolds business and am now enjoying working in the customer service department. I like getting to know our customers when I speak to them on the phone. At weekends I play rugby for Driffield ladies RUFC, which I absolutely love.
