A child of parents who met whilst living and working in Greece, having had a family home in Crete for almost 25 years and having studied in Grenoble, France in her twenties, Beth has always felt more at home in those countries than the UK.
A Service Delivery and Operations Manager in the UK, she realised quickly that she approaches problems and challenges in a very different way to most and created a successful Operations Consulting business in the UK.
In November 2017 she made the decision to transfer both her life and business permanently to Charente, France. Since then she has managed minor renovations on her home, established herself as an integral part of her commune and re-established her operations consultancy in France.
Through Kalitera she provides business improvement and project management services to small businesses here as well as administrative support to individuals.
