Katy Cherry
Crafting a world-class working environment for CARET and supporting everybody here

At the age of 16 Katy could give you a lesson in flyfishing, teach you how to castrate a calf, and introduce you to the joys of knitting, but couldn’t tell you what an email was – it was 1996, after all. Katy was introduced to the wonders of computers by telling the turtle to draw a line , but she was seriously unimpressed.

Fortunately these days Katy is much more at home in front of a computer. She provides administrative support to all of CARET’s staff and is often the first face you see when you walk in the door. She still insists on using a paper diary, much to the consternation of certain staff. If you want to know how the coffee machine works, where the red pens are or why the printer isn’t working then you should ask her. Katy also designs communications material for CARET itself and for individual projects. She organises and runs events of all kinds, and loves to see conference attendees having a good time.

Katy is constantly amazed by the creativity of her colleagues, who are in turn amazed by hers, and seeks to support all CARET projects by providing a fridge full of chocolate as well as a listening ear.

In her spare time, Katy relishes the sense of achievement she gets from making new things, and is deeply involved with the resurgence of the craft movement, knitting, sewing, baking, painting and more.
