Merrill joined us in August 2018 as our General Manager, a role which was created to replace the Domestic Bursar.
She attended Eastbourne College receiving training in Catering and Hotel Management. After completing her training, she worked as a trainee manager at Brighton University with responsibility for a residential conference centre for short courses. Most recently she worked as the Catering and Events Manager for local government in West London, a role which she was in for over 20 years. In this position she was the overseer for many events from large Asian & European Weddings to Mayoral Receptions.
Merrill lives locally in Staines-upon-Thames and has three sons. Her youngest son is 11 years old and plays various sports, so she spends most of her weekends supporting him from the side of a football or cricket pitch. Her eldest son lives in Dubai so she tries to get out there for a bit of sun and luxury twice a year.
She loves to travel, enjoys going to the theatre and cinema and spending time with her family and friends.
