WLN – What’s the most exciting thing about your job?

It is different every day! I enjoy the interactions with customers and just happen to work with the best team ever! (They paid me to say that!)

Kathryn Stabler, HR and Customer Services, Advanced Handling and Storage

WLN – Who’s inspired you most in your career?

My Grandma. The most amazingly, strong, independent, hard working woman I have ever met. A true inspiration to me and even though she isn’t around anymore she still manages to inspire!

WLN – If you were an item in a warehouse, what would you be?

Well, being in the pallet racking industry I have to say a pallet racking beam – I offer support and contribution to the load!

WLN – If you had to do it all over again, what would you do different?

Nothing! Everything in life whether it be good or bad happens for a reason. Sometimes you’ve just got to accept the path you’re given!

WLN – What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you at work?

Snapping the heel of my shoe as I was coming into the work car park hoping to beat everyone… only to be caught by our project manager walking like an idiot.

WLN – Who or what makes you laugh?

Funny things kids say – I can be entertained for hours by my youngest girl and some of the things she comes out with… I just wonder who she gets it from! 😉

WLN – Do you have any hidden talents?

Obviously… too many to mention!

WLN –Who would be your favourite party guest?

Tough one because there are so many to choose from… I would have to pick 2, Phil and Holly… good debates, loads of goss, lots of laughs and plenty of tequila!

WLN – What is the greatest luxury in your life?

Family! I couldn’t ask for any more than what I have.

WLN –What is your favourite guilty pleasure?

Pyjama days and crappy day time TV.

WLN – Do you have any secret ambitions?

I would love to write a book… not necessarily to publish, perhaps just for me (or anyone else who would want to read it). I would love to leave a scribble or two for prosperity with lots of happy memories.

WLN –What’s your dream holiday destination?

Santorini in Greece – My ultimate dream destination.

WLN –What are your three favourite movies of all time?

I am going to sound so sad here! … Labamba and Elf.

WLN –What is your favourite book of all time?

Tess of the Durbervilles by Thomas Hardy – I’m a sucker for a spirited heroine – it is an endearing classic!

WLN –What’s your favourite pastime?

Family time… too precious to miss out on!

WLN – If you won the Lottery, what would you do?

Blow it! … Seriously though I would invest some, buy property, holidays and of course champers!

WLN – What would be your advice to someone thinking about coming into the industry (apart from “don’t do it”)?
