Sales Support Administrator, Westsound FM

Tell us a little about what you do and why you love it

I work with a wonderful team of people here at Westsound and I am very lucky in that regard.  My main responsibilities are to provide first class administration and support to the commercial team.

My own wee part of the job is selling the Westsound Offers – Local Gems to small businesses in the Region who might otherwise struggle to afford the advertising.

What makes Dumfries and Galloway special to you? This is my home and always has been – I love this region and all of the twists and turns of colours and landscapes within it. We have the most glorious countryside that sits nestled beside architecture that is often underappreciated in both beauty and vision. I quite understand the community of creative people calling D&G their home – you couldn’t ask for more inspiration available in one place.

Are you involved in other arts and cultural activities? I am a photographer and I adore the moments of peace behind my camera lens ( Film Camera if you please for this current set of images) when I have the chance.  My preferred subject is the wild world of our region in all of the forms that might take: wildlife, wildflowers and the wild and windy landscapes.  I am also an aspiring writer and my focus will turn to that more closely in the coming year with a focus on developing my University Dissertation into something more accessible.

Have you always been involved in arts and culture locally?

I was one of the two Film Theatre Attendants at the RBCFT for 18 years and on graduating from the University of Glasgow, Dumfries Campus I was privileged to be the Film Officer for a little under a year and a half.  I love film – all different kinds of film – and I was able to work with a great group of people over that time too.  Connecting people and groups within our Community with potential events at the RBCFT made my work extra special.

If we asked a friend to tell us something surprising about you, what would they say? Suzi is a loyal friend who is much sillier than she lets new people believe… just wait and see!
