I have lived in Michaelston-le-Pit since March 2012, and absolutely love it here. I am originally from Talbot Green and, having lived near Bath and also in Worcestershire due to work commitments, I returned to Wales settling in Penarth in 1999. I started my career as an accountant in South Wales, and after some years moved into Sales roles in IT software development services. I now lead major projects to promote sales excellence and revenue growth across the global offices of a multinational Professional Services organisation. My husband leads an international technology company and my mum-in-law, a retired deputy head teacher and head of 6th form, also lives here in the village. In our leisure time my husband and I enjoy mountains (for skiing), beaches and coastline (for boating) and under my mum-in-law’s expert supervision, we are continually developing our gardening skills.
