Hello, I am Chris Breese. I joined the NPA as Office Manager in January 2014, following a career which took me from being a PA to becoming a Regional Business Manager before semi retiring and qualifying as a nursery practitioner.  

Previous experience has really helped me understand Portage, support the NPA Board and keep the office running.

My normal working days are Monday and Tuesday.
