What can colleagues – and friends – expect when they are around you?

I’d like to say that I’m a positive and animated person to be around. I aim to always be there to work through a challenge and listen when people need a sounding board.

The delivery of a random anecdote or terrible one-liner is also a strong possibility.


What are your guiding principles at work?

Always working with honesty and transparency and never being afraid to ask questions. I like to find out what motivates or engages people and build upon that to achieve results.


What motivates you in work and in life?

I am motivated by progression and like to embrace new challenges in both a professional and personal capacity. If I can leave a situation feeling like I have learnt something valuable, then that for me is incredibly rewarding.


What is the most unexpected thing you ever did?

I once became a midwife to two pigs and helped deliver 28 piglets in the dark on New Years Eve.
