SANDRA GRUBB

Plumbing, Drainage & Gas Fitting
 

I co-ordinate and allocate any general maintenance jobs from our customers, property managers and maintenance companies.

After working in administration & shipping in a meat processing plant, I started with Adams in 2007. Initially, I knew very little about plumbing, but I am very organised and have learned a lot over the past 12 years and now know how to boss plumbers around!

I am married with a son & daughter, and we live in Brighton across from the beach; we enjoy taking our dogs for walks and spending time with family & friends - my motto is: life's too short so take the holiday, buy the shoes and eat the cake.
