What’s a typical day like for you?
There isn’t a typical day on support!
Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
I reached grade 7 on the violin at school before I gave it up and it now gathers dust under my bed.
If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
Somewhere hot with an ice cold cocktail in my hand.
Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I had no idea. I loved being creative as a kid, so I wanted to do something with that but didn’t know what.
Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…
At the swimming pool for my daughters 8.30am swimming lesson.
Name three words that you describe you:
Honest, friendly, approachable.
What publications do you regularly read?
Sadly I don’t have time for regular reading, but I do enjoy a gossip magazine or two at the hairdressers.
What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
Having fun with the kids and meeting up with friends.
What are some causes you care about?
Cancer Research as cancer has affected most peoples lives. And Muscular Dystrophy UK as a friends little boy was diagnosed at 2 years old with Emery-Dreifuss which is a muscle-weakening and wasting condition and he will likely be in a wheelchair from his early teens. Every movement he makes is a challenge and it is heart breaking to know that there is no treatment for these conditions.
What do you do with friends in your spare time?
We tend to meet up at someone’s house so all the kids can go off and play (nicely!) together and the adults can catch up over a bite to eat and a glass of something chilled
What would be your personal motto?
Life is what you make it.
