Q + A

What is your favorite place you’ve been to, and where do you want to go next?

Throughout my career, I have been lucky to travel all over the world, but of all the places I fell in love with Hong Kong, as they say once a “city girl” always a “city girl”. Next, would be anywhere new, provided it is hot and sunny. 

What are your favorite hobbies outside of work?

Bit of a mad sports fan, so you will find me watching competitive sport wherever I can, from the stands at Stamford Bridge, as part of the Barmy Army or at any other sporting venue where tickets are obtainable.
