Our Background

Adrienne

 

‘‘My background has always been in the customer service industry. I trained as a hotel manager and then became involved in many types of sales roles. More recently I worked as a fundraiser for the local children’s hospice and a cancer charity.

I always enjoyed creative writing as one of my hobbies. I believe one of my greatest gifts is being able to engage anyone in conversation, even in times of trouble.

When my father and husband both sadly passed away, I realised how important is was to record, in some way, their stories to keep their memories alive. Memories of Me enables me to be able to do this for other families, to help keep their loved one’s memories. I get immense satisfaction from doing this as well as now being a fully qualified funeral celebrant.’’

‘‘I love to help people and make a difference to them. I started my working life as a primary teacher and then became a teaching consultant. After 20 years in the classroom, I decided to change career and became CEO of a community transport charity. I am also a hypnotherapist too.

Being fascinated by people, and following my dream, I re-trained as a celebrant and now conduct weddings and funerals. I am easy to get along with, have a calm nature and love to have a chat over a coffee and (calorie free) cake!

I feel that it is important to record people’s achievements, memories and thoughts so that when they die, they are not lost forever and are there for future generations to read.’’

‘‘We are close friends. We are committed to providing a unique and special service for everyone and understand the importance of getting it right.

We have found that everyone has a tale to tell but unfortunately sometimes this has been lost along the way. The days of families sitting down together and sharing stories have long gone and we now live in a faster paced world. We wanted to change this and so Memories of Me was born.’’
