Time at the charity
I joined the Charity Team in June 2022 but previously worked in the Group since September 2020.
Quick summary of your role
I am responsible for building and maintaining relationships with the Foundation’s beneficiaries, Community Partners and also potential new charities looking to make applications. I am here to provide advice and guidance to rescues and charities on how to process an application. This then ensures we have everything we need in order to present this to our Trustees so they can make an informed decision on who and what to fund. I also have the pleasure of visiting the rescues/charities so we can learn more about what they do.
What do you love most about working at Pets at Home Foundation?
I am new to the Foundation team but I am most looking forward to getting out there and meeting some beautiful animals and the incredible people behind the charities.
What pet do you have at home?
I have my cheeky boy Albus, who has the longest dog breed name - a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and a sassy personality to match!
What’s your favourite type of pet?
My first pets were guinea pigs so they hold a special place in my heart but I am definitely a dog mum! I truly love all pets & animals and I hope to expand my furry family soon.
What is your most memorable rescue experience?
I am new to the Foundation so have yet to visit any of the rescues but I look forward to making many memories soon!
What are you most excited for this year at PAHF?
I’m looking forward to exploring my new role as Charity Coordinator. I’m excited to visit and meet all the incredible charities and rescues that we work with and seeing the difference the Foundation can make. I’m especially looking forward to the more recent addition that the Foundation has made to broaden our objectives to support charities who work alongside pets and the people who love them. I firmly believe that “our lives are better with pets”, and I can’t wait to see the impact this funding will have on these charities.
Where are you most likely to be found in your job?
You’ll find me with a brew in hand either in the office or working from home. Most likely I’ll be juggling work calls and throwing the ball for my very needy personal assistant Albus!
