Val’s career working in the markets began straight after leaving school, where she went on to work for an agent for 23 years. She grew up fast in this environment, going from meek and mild to loud and assertive, with on the floor experience in reception and then progressing to dealing with growers and administration.
Val joined the Administration Team at Fruitlink in 2011. Since starting at Fruitlink, she has become an allrounder; from answering the phones, to customer service in the buyers office and everything in between. She continues to learn and is happiest when developing new skills.
When not in the office, Val likes to work in the garden and renovate her house. She can often be found visiting local markets and finding new places for lunch while riding on the back of a bike.
