Marilyn Palmer-Firth Office Manager/EA to the CE

Lincoln College is a great place to work, every day is different. I love the start of the application process when I get to talk to and meet various parents and their children who are leaving home generally for the first time. I really like to make people feel welcome and this all starts with the initial application.

I’ve really enjoyed photographing the residents as part of the ‘Faces of Lincoln’ project, and finding out more about them as people. It’s great when the residents come and have a chat to us in College Central.

Spending quality time and laughing with my son Louis and husband Glenn make me happy. We like to cuddle on the sofa watching a movie, and eating chocolate!

In my spare time I play PvZ2 a lot! I also enjoy a run along the beach, photography and going to the movies with only popcorn for company. 

My favourite films are Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually and Seven. 

My favourite books are Perfume by Patrick Süskind, a beautifully written book, We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini which made me sob uncontrollably.
