What have you learned in your time with the company?
During my time with Annah Stretton I have learnt that beauty comes from the inside out, comes in all shapes and sizes, all colors, ages and stages. That the lovely clothes we encourage woman to step into is an enhancement of their already, natural beauty. 

What is the best thing about working in fashion?

The best thing about working in fashion is that every day I work is an opportunity to dress up, surround myself in beauty and get my 'cup' filled with compliments.

What motivates and inspires you at work?

At work I am motivated and inspired by Annah's testimony and her success, her love of color, florals and her vintage interiors. I am also motivated by the kindness and encouragement received from customers.

What role does the job play in your life?

My job, at this stage, plays a very part time role in my life. It gives me the chance to take off my 'Mum hat' and get dressed up in my 'glad rags'.
