Shoes have always been a big thing in my family. As a young girl, I used to love going into Mum’s shoe wardrobe and my dreams more than came true when she opened a shop! As I grew older, I guess I appreciated more what a shoe offered – and that’s how I ended up doing what I do now.

I’m a mum with two young daughters, and like so many of my friends, I was keen to be as available to them both as I can be – and working from home was a great option. So, Sole Comfort was born. The brands I’ve chosen to work with – Rieker and Remonte – are not only stylish, practical and look great, they’re also really comfortable (I’m not just saying that – they’ve won awards for their comfort). Life as a working mum can be busy and my shoes always look great and they last!

Along for the ride with me – on my first foray into business – is my husband, Chris. We’re both learning a lot and enjoying the challenge.

As Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world” – I feel like I’m doing just that – one pair at a time.
