Karen's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a polite, personable & punctual bubbly person, very organised with an outgoing personality. I have achieved a good all round business acumen through a variety of work history and would like to think I can mix well with all walks of life. I'm a mother of 2 children whom I'm very proud, an achievment in itself!! My interests range from reading, gardening to motocross in which I play an active organisational role { my son rides at British level } I also like to travel at home & abroad. No two weeks are the same for me & that's how I prefer it - a good variety at work & home. I'm a very sociable person & like to think I can turn my hand to anything, which is why I enjoy promotional work View my contact details, availability, and stats.
