More about Stephanie Kerr
What is your proudest achievement? (work or non-work related)
I canoed 26 miles along the Leeds-Liverpool canal in pouring rain in an inflatable canoe for charity. It took ten hours to complete the canoeing marathon and my thumbs and palms were blistered for a week afterwards. I was also pregnant at the time, so its perhaps simultaneously my proudest and most stupid achievement.
If you had an alternative career – what would be your fantasy job?
A white water rafting guide, but somewhere exotic rather than in North Wales.
How do you like to relax out of work?
Currently renovating our new house, so relaxation usually involves sandpapering and knocking down walls!
