Funnily enough, the book that got Kathy reading as a child, was Enid Blyton’s Mr Galliano’s Circus! Her happiest times at school were spent in the arts room or sports hall, training gymnastics & trampolining.
Following an Art & Design Pathway lead Kathy to a long career in the Fashion Industry in the late 80’s & 90’s, managing UK & European sales for well known fashion house. By 1997, with 2 kids in tow, Kathy moved away from fashion into a PA role local to home, and then moved to Essex County Council, within Children’s Services, managing several administration teams in the South East. After a year out in 2014, she started volunteering for ROH, supporting Arts Education.
In 2015 she met Nik & Lucy when working for the charity, Hanger Arts Trust. When the Charity closed in 2017, she took the opportunity to join Nik & Lucy’s team at Aircraft Circus Academy, where she has enjoyed watching the magic of the new business unfold.
