Carrie Loakes

What made you work for Ashmere? I had already accepted another role when I came for my interview here but I came away with such a lovely feeling I just knew Ashmere was the right place for me.

What has your best moment been while working at Ashmere? Really feeling part of the Ashmere Family

What would you say is the biggest challenge about your role? It’s a busy role here in HR and I guess it’s just fitting everything in!

What’s the most unusual fact about yourself that not a lot of people know? I am obsessed with the Titanic. I even have a piece of coal from the ship!

What would we be likely to bump into you doing at the weekend? Me and my daughters have a season ticket at Notts County so that is normally our Saturday and Sunday’s tend to be catching up on jobs around the house!

What inspires you? My amazing little girls Leah & Scarlett. They are absolutely my whole world

My party trick is: Staying calm in my world of madness!

If I was born a girl, my parents would have named me: I was going to be called Nathaniel according to my mum.

My dream car registration plate would be: I have no idea – Leah suggested BESTEST MUMMY and Scarlett said SPARKLY UNICORN MUMMY.

My favourite cocktail is: Cosmopolitan – not that I get much chance these days!

If I was in a band, we would be called: The Bobsies – it’s what my daughter calls the three of us. We live in the Bobsie House and have Bobsie days out!

I cringe at: My dancing in front of the kids… If anyone ever saw me I’d be mortified!

I laugh at: The fact that I’m in my mid 30’s and still in love with The Backstreet Boys.

On my way to work I: Am currently singing to the Greatest Showman. Loudly lol…

If I won the lottery, I would: Be going on a VERY long holiday!

My guilty pleasure is: Cheese… I LOVE it and I tried to give it up last year but sometimes you just can’t beat chips and cheese!!

My home from home is: I loved visiting Toronto. Spent 8 weeks there and I loved every second.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever had is: Everything happens for a reason. You can’t always see it at the time but eventually it all becomes clear.

I am never without: My lipsolve!
