Hello, I’m Elaine, I joined the Wynbrook team in January 2024. I bring with me many years of experience in a range of administration roles, having worked my way through a cross section of industry sectors that carries transferrable skills that I know will add value to the Admin Team alongside Karen. My interests outside of work vary, with family at the top of the list especially my two adorable grandchildren, who I love to spend as much time with as possible. Another passion is motor sport, starting in the 1970’s watching Brisca F1 Stock Car Racing through to my enthusiasm for everything Formula 1, with the dream of travelling the world to world to watch every race.
