What’s the best thing about working at MWB? “Being part of an enthusiastic, creative and supportive team. Working on amazing projects, learning from one another and doing what I love!”
How do you like to unwind in your spare time after a busy week at work? “I enjoy cooking and baking for family and friends. I love going for walks with my dogs, Bronte and Lola and exploring the countryside. I also try to do yoga as often as possible.”
**THREE words that describe your personality. “**Determined, creative and caring.”
**What is your passion in life? “**Learning something new everyday and living every day to the fullest.”
**Is there a specific experience in life that always stayed with you, changed your outlook or made you more motivated to succeed? “**Being diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of eleven. This taught me a lot of resilience, to work hard and to appreciate the small things in life. I do believe everything happens for a reason and leads you on to the right path.”
What is your proudest achievement? ”My degree.”
Who was your role model/hero growing up? “Definitely my parents, they taught me core life skills and values. My Mum taught me the importance of kindness and care. Whereas my dad taught me to never give up on your dreams and to work hard.”
**Where is your favourite place in the world? “**Paris! I love the atmosphere, architecture, the food and landscape. Also my dream is to travel around Canada, specifically British Columbia, so in the future this could become my favourite place.”
What is the one thing you could not go a day without? “My dogs! (crazy dog lady)”
What is your favourite song? “Tough one! So many to choose from, depends how I am feeling. I’m currently listening to Lucy Spraggan.”
What is your favourite Film/TV programme? “Over lockdown I watched far too much Below Deck! I also love a gripping drama/thriller, like Doctor Foster or The Bay.”
What are your favourite food and drink choices? “Tea! Herbal tea, iced tea or standard breakfast tea, I love tea! Fav food: probably Chicken Schnitzel (a traditional family dish that my Dad cooks) or a noodle dish, such as a Ramen.”
What would you say is your hidden talent? “Maybe that I can paint?”
What is your biggest phobia? “Heights, I didn’t think I had a fear of them until I went for a coastal walk in Cornwall…”
What is your favourite motivational quote? “If your dreams don’t scare you, they are too small.”
What would be top of your bucket list? “Travelling to Canada and visiting family in Chicago.”
If you won well over £1,000,000 on the lottery, what would you spend your winnings on? I would share it with my family, travel, buy a house with a big garden for many rescue dogs and donate to an epilepsy charity.
Finally, if you hosted a dinner party, who would be your chosen FIVE guests (dead or alive) and WHY?
My Grandad (Ted) - I was five when my Grandad Ted passed away and in those first five years we became very close, so I would love to be able to spend more time with him.
My Granny (Maria) - I was only a couple of years old when she passed, so I would love the chance to meet her properly.
My Grandad (George) - I never got to meet my Grandad George, so meeting him for the first time would be special.
Vex King - I’m currently reading his book and would love to be able to chat to him about it and find out more about his story.
Ed Sheeran - He could tell some amazing stories and sing some great songs!
