say hello to Louise, Makes the Barns Run Smoothly

I started at Ella’s in 2009 as Helps Keep the Barn Shipshape (Admin Assistant) My role was to create a safe, practical, fun + happy environment for us all in our new home, we now know as the Little Barn. Since then, seeing Ella’s grow over the years has been amazing and have been on a very exciting journey to where I am now as Office Manager. I’ve gained experience in HR along the way and met some amazing people I will never forget.

a little background please, what do you do day to day at Ella’s Kitchen?

My job is all about making sure that everyone in + around the Barns is happy + healthy. I take care of all the fun, super exciting bits including Health + Safety, IT, Car Parking tours + being Green around the Barns. I’m also one of Ella’s Mental Health First Aiders which means I’m always on hand to have a cuppa or go for a walk with anyone that fancies having a chat or wants a listening ear.
