Describe yourself in 3 words:
Honest, witty (although, admittedly only I find myself so) and friendly
How do you like to relax out of work?
I love travelling and still have a few places to tick off my bucket list, so when I can, I try and book a get away. I also enjoy spending time with my family and trips to the theatre.
If you had an alternative career – what would be your fantasy job?
As bizarre as it may sound, following my safari trip to Masai Mare in Kenya, I would love to have a job in wildlife conservation!
And what would go in your Room 101?
Chocolate but not because I don’t like it – I just know it isn’t good for me.
