Staff Insight

Having grown up on her family’s dairy farm just outside of Tiverton, Lou always wanted an agriculturally based job when she was older. However, with an older brother, the next best step was an office-based role. She started working for Margaret in 2006 and has been working with her ever since, 15 years!

In the office, she has a predominantly agricultural client portfolio and loves working with the farming community. She enjoys the challenges that the industry presents and getting to the bottom of problems faced.

She has a very energetic 3-year-old, Olivia, who keeps her very busy outside of work and they both love going over to the farm and helping with the milking when they can (although Olivia insists a hat is a necessity to avoid anything landing on her head!). Lou is also a keen horse rider and enjoys hunting through the winter months and when she can, days out with family and friends watching Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park are a must.
