THE new retail manager at Living Coasts, Torquay's coastal zoo and aquarium, has the perfect qualifications for the job – she's crazy about sea creatures.
Lee-Ann Mugford explained: "I've always been fascinated by them – by the way that they move, the way that they look – everything. I swam with dolphins and stingrays in Florida – it was absolutely incredible. It was fulfilling a lifelong ambition."
Lee-Ann was born and bred in South Devon and has 14 years of retail experience. She trained with H Samuels and worked for the company in Poole before managing its Plymouth store. More recently, she worked with Matalan.
