What energises you at work?
Achieving targets, happy staff, happy customers, good vibes, clean environment. We are only as good as our team.
What’s one thing that surprised you about working here?
How work can be simultaneously exhausting but exhilarating and watching the business grow with good people in it. Creating a ‘family’ inside the business has been a very personal journey and seeing the team look after the business as their own is awesome and incredibly touching.
What’s your favourite way to unwind after a busy day?
Walking pooches, stroking the parrot and beer. The cat, kids and husband feature in there somewhere too!
If you could snap your fingers and be an expert in something, what would it be?
Painting watercolours and interior design.
