Katharine started in HR over 4 years ago, after a previous career of business partnering in IT for various companies including multi-nationals and a national charity. She had always been interested in HR and when an opportunity came up to re-train as an HR professional, she saw that she could develop her HR interest and her business partnering experience for the benefit of business. Since starting in HR, she has had comprehensive experience in a multi-national engineering firm enabling her to learn operational HR and best practice whilst also gaining an international recognised HR qualification.

Her journey in wine started from when she could walk when her father frequently used to take her foraging for wild fruit to make his legendary home-made wine.

In her downtime, she enjoys living life by the sea with her family ( including a Labrador ) and loves to travel to unusual places – her last trip was trekking across the Jordanian desert.
