Liz is a Devon girl through and through. Growing up in South Devon and gaining a Law Degree from Exeter University, she is now settled just outside Exeter. Never quite feeling fulfilled by her professional career, being made redundant whilst on maternity leave from her legal job, was actually a blessing in disguise, though it did not feel that way at the time.
A firm believer in everything happening for a reason, it was the kick she needed to take the leap into the unknown and follow her passion for seeking out and supporting small independent brands. Two children later, Liz has spent the last 18 months working with British children’s brands, with a stand at both the Baby Show at London’s Olympia and a chalet at the Exeter Christmas Market.
She is in the final stages of development of her new app, called Piggleapp, bringing beautiful children’s brands, activities and attractions to the fingertips of families across the UK.
The main thing she misses now is the personal connections with like minded people. There is a distinct lack of networking opportunities, especially with women that have taken the plunge and ditched the 9-5, and she wants to change that.
