At school, Charlene was very sporty qualifying in coaching for numerous sports, soon leaving the sporting world behind to study as a hair and makeup artiste, and special effects working on small independent films but needed a change….
Followed by 9 years in Retail Management at Next, Charlene picked up skills in merchandising and customer service which she knew would be transferable. Moving onto more field-based Sales roles in Account Management and Business Development with Avon, Charlene then found herself selling educational equipment into Schools and Nurseries.
Lastly selling medical supplies into the Healthcare sector within Care homes!
Charlene loves the support of a great team as well as striving to be her best by her own merit.
Out of hours, Charlene adores her husband and 3 fur babies (cats, she has practised Yoga for many years and loves eating in new and interesting restaurants. But, entertaining her friends/family and creating new dishes is another love…and of course making signature cocktails!!
Ever since seeing ‘The Little Mermaid’ at the cinema it’s been Red hair forever, it sure does help being married to a hairdresser for that maintenance! You’ll rarely catch her in flat shoes, Charlene is a typical girly girl who loves shopping and has mastered the art of hiding those new clothes from hubby (let’s hope he doesn’t read this)!
Welcoming Charlene to Xen has been a pleasure, we’ve already seen the results that she can produce!
