Biggest professional achievement to date?

Advice for a young woman stepping into the world from school, college or Uni?
Get as much experience as you can, whether paid or unpaid; and throw yourself into every opportunity.
The most influential woman in your life & why?
Oprah Winfrey – From humble beginnings of pain and struggle, including suffering rape at the tender age of nine, she has triumphed over adversity. An empowering and inspirational woman; she never gives up.
Keep a positive attitude and you’ll get positive results. Also, I truly believe that gratitude is the new attitude and count my blessings daily. “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough” – Oprah Winfrey
“You don’t have to be great to get started, but you do have to get started to be great”

100 Most Influential Women 2018
Grow Exeter Magazine launched the ‘100 Most Influential Women 2018’ in Exeter and the region in December 2017 and we received around 500 nominations for influential women from all walks of life; our panel was spoilt for choice and hard-pressed to select only 100 from the talented nominees that they viewed. The Launch of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ awards in 2018 has perhaps even more value than in any other year as it was just 100 years ago that the first woman was granted the right to vote in the UK.
Women have truly shown that they can shine in any environment, whether that be in the boardroom, teaching our children, climbing mountains, navigating uncharted waters, they can do anything that they set their mind to and we can’t wait to celebrate our own talented 100.
Honouring women in our March edition of Grow Exeter falls in line with International Women’s Day on the 8th March and the 100 finalists will also be featured in this special edition. To see the 100 finalists individually featured, please grab a copy of our March edition by pre-ordering through the link below. We will be publishing each woman online throughout March so watch our Facebook page or the website for their stories.
A huge congratulations to everyone nominated and to the finalists, you are all amazing!
