Naomi grew up at Tropiquaria which her parents created when she was a child. Building a zoo in an old 1930s BBC transmitter hall helped form a big part of Naomi's guiding principle that 'anything is possible!' After running Tropiquaria for some years, Naomi was the driving force behind the Minehead EYE project, a youth centre/skate park which won a £3.2m Lottery grant, and openned in 2010, for which she remains the Chairman. Last year Minehead EYE took on the running of youth clubs across West Somerset, including Watchet, in the face of county council cuts. She is a founder of Prend Consulting Ltd, a research and consultancy agency, and key team member for Contains Art, a new quayside gallery and artist studio space on Watchet's East Quay.
