Making Meal Times Easier
As busy working parents ourselves, we know that unpredictable toddlers and their food habits can be, well, challenging to say the least.

I am the creative mind behind doddl and I am constantly coming up with weird and wonderful ideas. Fortunately, I also have good business sense and I can combine these traits to produce innovative products. My inspiration is my three amazing children and I am sure fellow parents of twins will agree they are both exhausting and exhilarating in equal measures! I thrive on the challenge of seeing how I can make every day items better and hopefully in the process, make life that little bit easier!
As a business leader, implementing plans for steady and sustainable growth is my speciality. I successfully grew my first business from humble beginnings to a multi-award winning company. Doddl is an exciting new venture and I am really enjoying working with my sister, Cat. We complement each other really well; Cat is the inventor and I supply the business know-how and together I think we make a strong team.
