Integrator, Innovation & Sales
My current role in Uccello is what we call the Integrator, which can involve wearing many different hats. We have a few different Teams such as Social Impact, People, Innovation, Sales, Marketing, Finance and Operations and I am honoured to be able to participate in each of these Teams with the best colleagues I’ve ever had. In a nutshell, I see my role as trying to solve bottlenecks and issues as quickly as possible, or ideally before they have an impact, so the Teams can get on with what they do best.
I’ve worked on every continent except Antarctica and swam in every ocean except the Arctic…… I guess I don’t like the cold very much. Went to University for the first time when I was 35; to get an MBA – better late than never.
When I’m not in the office, I love the outdoors, hiking or country walks in forests. I also love listening to and playing music; I play a few different instruments, and I also love reading and poetry. I think spicy food must get mentioned here too!!!
Customer Care Manager
My current role in Uccello is leading Customer Care. This includes all queries from our valued customers which can relate to sales, warranty, delivery, or payment issues. It also includes all questions and other requests for information from Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Carers and other medical professionals, resellers, disability organisations and all other people and organisations wishing to partner with Uccello Designs.
Before this role in Uccello, I was also the Digital Marketer for Ireland and the Operations Admin. I have worked as a marketer for several other companies and enjoyed every minute of it but helping people is where my passion is. I also have 23 years’ experience in the Irish Defense Forces; this has nurtured this passion, and which also gave me the experience needed to take on the Operations Administrator role.
Outside of the office, I love playing musical instruments, singing, forest walks and hiking & swimming. I have played in bands most of my life and love it. Did I mention chocolate???
At Uccello Designs, I am the Sales, Marketing, and Operations Administrator. This includes assisting with B2C sales, customer care and any warranty, delivery or payment issues. I thoroughly enjoy working with everyone in the team and in delivering exceptional service to our customers.
I joined the Uccello team in 2022, with prior experience in the corporate and legal field, together with various customer-facing roles. I graduated with a BA in Business and Law in 2015 and enjoy applying this knowledge to the role on a daily basis.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to new places and experiencing new things. I love listening to live music and generally enjoying spending time with my daughter, friends and family.
Finance and Operations
At Uccello my role is management of Finance and Operations for Ireland, Australia and the UK.
I am responsible for B2B and B2C orders from manufacture and delivery to the customer. As my role covers a number of area’s I tend to be involved in all areas of the operation which makes for a lot of interesting days. I believe in Uccello’s products and its ethos as we actively look for ways to make our customers lives easier as a team and individually.
I am a part-qualified accountant with many years experience working industry and practice. I have worked with a variety of different software systems which enables me to be versatile within my roles. I lived in New Zealand for a number of years which gave me exposure to a different tax system and accounting procedures. I have been a member of an Audit and Risk committee in a voluntary capacity, as I feel it is important to give back to the community.
I like to spend time with my family and bringing our dogs on walks. I am an amateur artist leaning towards charcoal portraits. I am interested in sustainability and I have been vegan for a number of years.
Warranty & After-care Administrator
My relatively new role in Uccello is to make people’s lives easier. I aim to do this by packaging and posting accessory and warranty items to customers in Australia and New Zealand, within a 24 hour turnaround time.
I took up this role in early 2022 following my retirement from 30 years of teaching English as a Second Language, mostly in Australian universities
Tai Chi has long been a regular practice in my life, combined with plenty of beach walks and time in nature. Dancing and socialising definitely keeps a spring in my step. My craft room gets a regular workout too where I enjoy making greeting cards and doing other arty projects.
Sales & Innovation Support
My role at Uccello Designs is ever evolving and changing depending on what the business needs at any given point. I’m involved in sales and innovation conversations, as well as assisting the team on developing new markets and growing existing ones. At Uccello we’re all about making people’s lives easier, and my focus is on both improving our current product offering and creating new products that embody this mission
I have an extensive sales and business development background, working in the telecommunications and online sectors. I’ve taken over the family business in Perth, as well as assisting with the development and launch of the Uccello Kettle with its inventor, my father-in-law, Andy De Petra.
When I’m not in the office juggling the demands of two businesses, I love relaxing with my partner, three beautiful children, and extended family. Staying active is a big part of my life, whether it’s playing touch football, competing in obstacle challenges or working out at the gym. In the spare time I have, I’m also rebuilding a project car from scratch with my son.
