Leaving school at 16 to embark on a remarkable professional adventure, Sharon’s first stop was at the iconic Savoy Hotel in the heart of London, where she assumed the role of Secretary to the General Manager of the engineering department. It was here that her passion for administration and finance first blossomed.
Over time, Sharon’s career path led her to various smaller organisations, where she honed her skills in payroll, accounts and credit control.
On one of her visits back to Stamford, Sharon met Garie and the rest, they say, is history! Married in 1983 and opening their salon in 1986, they embarked on parenthood and their three grown children now have children of their own. Harley, Monet and Indy have all worked in the salon, with Monet playing a key part in it’s success. Harley’s fiancee, Charlie, ensures that the salon is in good hands and very much a family affair. Sharon takes on the pivotal role of running the administration side of salon life, overseeing the day-to-day management of banking, payroll processing, maintaining purchase and sales ledgers, as well as managing VAT control and marketing efforts.
Despite her demanding responsibilities, Sharon always finds time to indulge in some well-deserved self-care. Her frequent visits to the salon serve as a rejuvenating escape, where she keeps her hair in tip-top condition and takes a moment to relax and pamper herself. This cherished ritual remains a constant treat and she never takes it for granted! “It’s so important to look after yourself, both physically and emotionally and I find popping into the salon for a chat and a blow dry covers both brilliantly”!
Outside of her professional and family commitments, Sharon embraces her leisure time and has a deep appreciation for the great outdoors, particularly our beautiful coastline. She loves to spend time gardening, knitting, sewing and reading. Her most important moments, though, are those spent in the company of friends and family.
