Abby then progressed to the office team and is now working directly with our Managing Director as a Personal Assistant. Beryl’s family have said, “Abby in the office does an amazing job, I love chatting with her and the way she makes me feel anything is possible. If she rings me with a problem the team usually have a solution up their sleeve or give me the encouragement to find one.
