Employment History

Present

Freelance Audio Transcriber; available directly and through Upwork

August 2005 to Present

CRAFT SHOP OWNER

I left Tregenna Castle to open my shop, which is where I have been ever since, putting the skills and experience learnt to good use.

Running my own business gives me the opportunity to work in the industry I love; whilst rising to the challenges that come with being a business owner. My love for my shop is still as strong – but work, home life, income – is a difficult balance.

I decided to downsize the business, reduce my working hours at the shop and to take up the opportunity to freelance as a typist, transcriber. This allows me to supplement my income by freelancing in the additional hours I have available, whilst spending more time home.

August 1995 to August 2005
