Chat to me if you want… To know about setting up a business for social purpose and what I wish I’d known then that I do now.

My favourite Hey Girls product is… Our bamboo and corn starch pads. Not that I don’t adore all of our products, but these beautiful plastic-free sustainable beauties were the first product we created, so have a special place in my heart. Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing sustainable crops – anything that’s good enough for pandas, right! 

My fun fact is… I won a Blue Peter badge for my Road Safety Poster when I was 9 years old.

Mum to Chris, Becky and Kate, and Granny to Eva, Hardy and Harlo.

Chat to me if you want… To become one of our amazing Donation Partners and offer free period products to the people that need them in the UK. 

My favourite Hey Girls product is… Our beautiful organic bamboo period pads. I wore one every day when I was heavily pregnant for any accidental leaks with a baby sat on my bladder. They were also a post-partum saviour when you want something smooth on your very sensitive parts. 

My fun fact is… Watching videos of wild horses running free makes me cry. Every. Single. Time. 

Mum to Harlo (a very sassy 2 year old) and 3 fur babies.

Chat to me if you want… To stock your school, shop, library, University, business, or just about anywhere, with high quality, eco-friendly period products.  No matter how big or small your order I’m happy to chat product types, volumes, order processes, dispensing options and more!

My favourite Hey Girls product is… Period pants, the perfect solution to periods! Being comfy, easy, discreet and reusable, I couldn’t ask for more!

My fun fact is… Before settling down in the real world I spent several winters as a chalet girl in the Alps (a little piece of my heart will forever be in the mountains!), whilst there I hosted both Geri Halliwell and Sir Paul McCartney. I may even have played his guitar!

Mum to Arlo and Toren.

Chat to me if you want… To talk about marketing, comms and all of our lovely products. We love to collaborate, share ideas and get involved in initiatives with like-minded organisations so get in touch if you want to pitch an idea or tell us about you!

My favourite Hey Girls product is… That’s a tricky one, as it’s changed over time.  I’ve worn organic tampons for the past 15 years and have dabbled in cups and pants. My favourite Hey Girls item is our mid-waister period pants, and for lighter days our period pads or cotton tampons.

My fun fact is… I’m a fully qualified yoga teacher and am currently trying to master handstands.

brand development lead

Chat to me if you want… To collaborate, a feature on our social or to know anything about Hey Girls branding. Also, if you want to find out how to bring Period Dignity to your workplace or university, I can get your loo’s stocked up.

My favourite Hey Girls product is… The period pants! The perfect answer to the lazy-girl period. Since joining Hey Girls, I’ve made a massive move into the world of reusables, but on occasion, I switch back to our ‘smooth operator’ applicator tampons.

My fun fact is… I can recite Beyoncé’s entire Lemonade album.

Chat to me if you want… To know about accounting, Stock control, Business operations, WooCommerce.

My favourite Hey Girls product is… All the period products we donate; that’s why Hey Girls exists.

My fun fact is… I passed my FA Soccer coaching certificate some years ago – I await the call.

tracy
logistics manager

Chat to me if you want… To know about all things Logistics, customer lead times and invoicing.

My favourite Hey Girls product is… I have to say I’m a cup kinda girl, the only thing I regret is not knowing about them before I joined Hey Girls, or I would have converted years ago!

My fun fact is… I entered a Body Building competition years ago with PHD Whey, I came second! I also completed my first ultra-marathon last year and am hoping to do another in the future.

Second Mum to Tazmin and Kane, and Furmum to Kai and Loki.

karen
dispatch team

Chat to me if you want… To know about pick and packing the Hey Girls products, despatching bulk and small packages. 

My favourite Hey Girls product is… Applicator tampons as these are very comfortable.

My fun fact is… Some pupils in my high school were picked by the London Ballet to do a production of Cinderella at the Kings Theatre in Glasgow, and I was one of the pupils. I also took part in the strongest school girl in Scotland and Britain for weight lifting and came second in the competition – it was on the National News!

Mum to Lori and Arran.

pamela
dispatch team

Chat to me if you want… To know about working in the Hey Girls dispatch team and how we make sure that you receive your order in a lovely little parcel.

My favourite Hey Girls product is… The “First Period Kit” and “My Period cards”. As a mum to an 11 year old girl, they are ideal to get the conversation flowing (pardon the pun), and the fab little wash bag in the first period kit is a firm favourite with my daughter to keep everything in.

My fun fact is… I have a home account on Instagram, and when I was very young I got to dance on stage in Edinburgh with Five Star – I just love cheesy singalong music!

Mum to my own fantastic four Ryan, Cameron, Stefan and Zara.

ildiko
dispatch team

Chat to me if you want…  To know how to be organized, how to use computer software or how to pack a small box into an even smaller one.

My favourite Hey Girls product is… The panty liners. This period product I use regularly and it is so soft it makes my pants more comfortable.

My fun fact is… My surname means parsley. On the second day in high-school my classmate didn’t remember my name and started guessing. This is how I got my nickname, carrot. I’m not a fan of the vegetables though.
