MEET THE TEAM
EVERY TEAM YOU NEED TO MAKE IT HAPPEN..
Hi, I’m Mikki Harris, Founder and Managing Director. I started my career in 1999, working for small local businesses in various admin and supporting roles, moving into the world of large corporates in 2003 where I honed my skills in a number of back office roles including training, projects, research and management. I launched MOMENTUM Business Support in 2013 after working with a number of small businesses and realising there was a demand for them to have access to the same level of support and expertise as larger companies – just with more flexibility!
I absolutely love spending time growing and developing my company, but when I’m not you’ll find me walking in the countryside or socialising and spending quality time with friends and family.
Hi, I’m Jane Foster. I started my career in 2000, working in various retail roles from sales assistant to assistant manager. I had a change of career in 2006, where I became an administrator. Moving to a larger corporate company in 2009 I started as an administrator but later moved into a technical role, where I was responsible for all website imports and exports. I started working for MOMENTUM in 2015 after having my son. I love the variety my role offers and am excited to be part of a continuously growing business.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, running and getting involved in charity events.
Hi I’m Naomi Cane, MCIPD, I have a background in exceptional customer service, office administration, Human Resources and People and Change management. I have worked for various types of business, including, Exportation, Airlines, Timber Yards, large corporates and a number of small and medium sized businesses around Sussex. I retrained and studied for my postgraduate HR degree CIPD in 2002 and upgraded that to MCIPD in 2006.
I left the corporate world to have 2 boys who keep me very busy, mainly outside, bike riding, horse riding, the beach and various farms and parks.
I am passionate about providing an excellent service whether it be administration or more complex HR queries or support. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their business and their teams.
Hi, I’m Kristina Gander. I have worked in various administrative roles throughout my career, including secretarial, account management and office administration, where I was always praised for my first-class customer service and organisational skills. I took some time out to have my 2 sons who kept me very busy and allowed me to utilise my organisational skills! I then re-trained and started working for Momentum in June 2017. I love working for a company that offers the flexibility to enable me a good work/life balance.
I enjoy the varied work and learning new systems so that no two days are ever the same. In my down-time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running and paddle boarding.

When I’m not working, I enjoy being by the sea, photography, spending quality time with family and my beautiful Black Labrador Zeus!
Hi, I’m Julie Jones, I have over 20 years of experience in customer service and office administration working with clients from the private and public sector. I am married with two girls, born and raised in Torquay. I have my own photography business which I started when my children became of school age. I volunteer for the NCT Charity for the Torbay & South Devon Branch as a digital marketer and social media co-ordinator.
I thrive on being busy and having the opportunity to utilise my skills, developed through employment and interests. A role that offers variety is important to me and I am excited to be part of a continuously growing dynamic business.
When I’m not working it’s about family fun together, indoors and outdoors, from the park to the crafting table. I also enjoy sports including paddle boarding, running and yoga.
Hi, I’m Lara Harris. A large amount of my career has been spent in the luxury travel sector, in addition I’ve worked across the City of London in a variety of Financial Service admin functions from EA, Team Assistant, Roadshows & Events. I am accustomed to working in high pressure and fast paced environments. Coordinating complex tailor-made luxury holidays or processing your expenses, I strive to always deliver the same high level of attention and detail as I would my own projects.
I am passionate about Travel and for the last four years I have run my own Personal Travel Agency, this has allowed me some wonderful opportunities to see the world, whilst expanding my destination knowledge.
In my spare time you can normally find me anywhere there is live music, failing that I will be outdoors on my bike or paddleboard.
I am delighted to become part of the Momentum Team and embrace all the variety of this exciting new role!
