I have a sales and marketing background and have over 15 years experience marketing everything from colour measurement equipment with X-Rite/Pantone to clothing at JD Williams, and Steel Rolling Mills with Siemens!
I left the “corporate” world of marketing in 2016 to join Twile, a business set up by my husband. I helped steer this company towards an acquisition by a large genealogy company, Findmypast.com.
Having had a taste of working from home around my family, I undertook some freelance work and spotted STAG Mumbler.
I noticed there wasn’t a Mumbler in my area and seeing the possibility to be creative and in control of my own destiny, I did some market research and took the leap, launching Doncaster Mumbler in September 2018.
Mumbler is a fantastic resource for parents. I have two children, aged seven and five and we have found so many amazing things to do in Doncaster. It is great to share this with everyone else!
We live in a great town and it is fantastic to help promote some brilliant activities for families, plus the kids love helping me out at events and being a part of it too.
I’ve had some lovely feedback from both parents and businesses. Being a mum is hard sometimes and Mumbler can help. It’s especially rewarding helping new mums embarking on the journey – we’re in it together!
I’ve had the best nine months, and am planning for the Doncaster Mumbler Awards 2019! It’s been a lot of hard work, but I work school hours or catch up around the kids’ activities.
Being a Mumbler franchisee has far exceeded my expectations.

Taking the leap to run Mumbler full time was a big scary decision - I'm the main breadwinner in our house so I had to make it work. Seven years later and now I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life to make that leap.Emily Pickard, York Mumbler
I have the flexibility to work around the family, allowing me to attend school events, manage any sick days, be there to pick them up from school and be their taxi service for after school activities! We love experiencing new activities as a family and Mumbler has allowed that, most of the time the kids don’t realise mummy is working as they are also having so much fun!Anna Winter, North Leeds Mumbler
