How do you like to relax out of work?
I love spending time with my two children whether we are cosy at home or out exploring. I have also recently started a couch to 5k app.
What aspect of your job do you find most rewarding?
Providing solutions and guiding clients through tricky periods in their life. Often clients approach me but can’t identify what they need to do amid their tangled personal circumstances, it is satisfying to discuss their concerns together and prepare a course of action.
What is your proudest achievement?
Apart from my children, one of my proudest achievements is trekking the Inca Trail and visiting Macchu Picchu. I was lucky enough to travel quite widely after university. As part of that, I also volunteered at a children’s orphanage in Vietnam.
If you had an alternative career – what would be your fantasy job?
A Blue Peter presenter. It looks so much fun and you get to do amazing experiences as part of your day job!
