Our Contributors | Martha McKenzie

Martha, often described as quirky, became part of our sales team in 2012 after leaving her home in London to join her boyfriend, now husband in Loughborough. Martha is a key member of the sales team and a friendly face to greet our customers on arrival. Martha has a strong passion for music, in which she holds a grade 8 qualification in singing, a grade 7 qualification for the piano and a Vocal Music Diploma. Martha’s mastery over music has seen her perform at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as being a finalist in the Yamaha singer-song writer competition. A further string to her bow can be found as she is a founding member of the successful Folk group Careen, a band that are so talented that they have been known to perform at many venues including our staff parties!
In her spare time Martha enjoys participating in dressage competitions, horse riding, theatre and has an addiction to watching YouTube videos. She is a very kind person with an interest in raising awareness for animal charities and spends lots of time with her long haired cat, Sesame.
