Meet The Team

Jan Baker

Jan joined Ware Priory many years ago on a part time basis becoming full time in 2005.  Previously Jan worked at the Maltings in Stanstead Abbotts for a secretarial services company and before having her children she worked in London as a Legal Secretary for solicitors Slaughter & May, Herbert Smith and Allen & Overy.

You find Jan in the Priory reception ready to greet you. Jan’s job is never dull; she enjoys meeting and greeting the General Public daily, whether it is an enquiry for booking Ware Priory for an event or just dealing with the public’s day to day concerns.

In her spare time Jan enjoys spending time with her family and grandchildren, keeping fit, reading and cinema.
