Hi, I'm Senara! Senara is a traditional Cornish girl's name meaning 'light'.

Senara was a mermaid in mythical tales. She was able to swim through the worst of storms and protect the fishing village of Zennor.

Senara reflects our Cornish roots and our hope to be a beacon of help and support to families in need.

Angela Adams - Admin Support

 

I’ve now spent more than 14 busy years building my administrative and management experience in the NHS. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy each step of my working journey so far; a career which has included practice and dispensary management in primary care, medical secretary services at Treliske Hospital along with an occasional detour into the property sector.

In 2017 I made the decision to use the skills and knowledge I’ve acquired to offer freelance secretarial and management services to those looking for remote office support. I’ve remained in my areas of interest and expertise – medical/clinical and property - and love working with my clients and their customers to provide a first class service.
