About me


My Motivation

Nicola Saville


Finance & Administration Manager


I have always worked in the public and third sector but not always in finance or administration, as I was for many years an Environmental Education Officer, taking children on adventures such as rock-pooling, pond-dipping and mini-beast hunting.

I enjoy walking, running and cycling in the beautiful countryside of Monmouthshire and its surrounding area.



“Every heart that has beat strongly and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind.”

Leonie Shepherd


Central Services Administrator

(Mon, Tues, Wed)


I’ve relocated to Abergavenny from Hampshire and have been working for Mind Monmouthshire for a few months now. Since having my 2 beautiful daughters I’ve worked part time in various administration roles, prior to starting my family I worked as a Packaging Development technologist.

I enjoy spending time with my family, climbing all the surrounding mountains and love the Welsh countryside.



I take great pleasure in providing help and supporting others.

Tracey Cooper   Central Services Administrator  

I have worked for Mind Monmouthshire for about 13 months now.  Previously, I worked in public, private and 3rd sector but most of my time has been spent working in the 3rd sector, this is where my heart lies. My background is a mix of administration and adult education.

I enjoy holidays abroad as I love the hot weather. I like going out on our motorbike travelling over Wales (as pillion!).



I enjoy helping people to access our various services and giving them hope.

Finance Administrator


I work as a Finance Administrator on a Tuesday and Wednesday, then I am kept on my toes by my wonderful son for the rest of the week, as well as bookkeeping (accountancy is my passion) for our family business. If I am not doing the above I am usually doing beauty treatments (I am also a qualified beautician!) or catching up with friends.



Pasta & Curry are my favourite foods (but not together!)
