Q&A

What's the best thing about your job?

My job is very varied which suits my butterfly personality perfectly as I have a very low boredom threshold and enjoy being busy. I would hate to be doing the same thing all day. I can be organising a large corporate event or booking flights for management meetings one minute and sending out floral gifts for births/weddings colleagues the next.

What’s your biggest achievement to date?

My biggest achievement was finally getting to own my own horse after years of asking for one as a child when I couldn’t really understand that it wasn’t possible to keep one in a back garden. My dream finally came true when we moved to the farm.

What are you most afraid of?

Rats & Mice – I should be used to it by now by though with living on a farm.

What was your favourite subject at school?

My favourite subjects at school were English Language/Literature and History.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

My only claim to fame is ironically meeting Ken Dodd who opened the Ellesmere Port Branch and Johnny Vegas who were both extremely funny guys.
