Marie is an HR Advisor at the East of England LGA team. Prior to working for the Association Marie carried out a 6 month contract with Forest Heath District Council in their HR department where she got a taste and enthusiasm for the workings of Local Authorities.  

Marie has worked for Greene King on two separate occasions both as a HR Advisor and more recently as a Recruitment Co-ordinator.  In between these two roles she worked for an American manufacturing plant in Ipswich carrying out a two and a half year assignment assisting the HR Director with a Redundancy project.  Following completion of her degree in Hotel, Tourism & Business Management Marie in her twenties joined a Wine Merchant Company  on a graduate training programme and was promoted to Senior Manager of two Central London Wine Bar and Restaurants.  She remained in her operational role until moving to Suffolk 15 years ago.  Whilst missing the hustle and bustle Marie is now happily settled and enjoying Suffolk life.

In her spare time Marie is a keen walker who enjoys mountain climbing with her brother in Ireland and makes an annual trip to the Brecon Beacons camping and climbing a few of the more challenging peaks.  She enjoys cooking and travelling, returning to Tuscany every September for the excellent food, hilltop towns and amazing countryside.
