What do you do at BOOST&Co?
I am a Principal at BOOST&Co.
What was your first job?
Working as a sales assistant at The Body Shop, which meant I got to try lots of nice lotions and potions!
What do you love most about your job and why?
I love meeting interesting people from different walks of life, seeing how ideas are developed into great businesses, and then being a part of helping them achieve their potential. It’s very rewarding and I have made some great friends along the way.
What can’t you work without?
Ooh, a tough one. My pink highlighter pen or Post It notes!
What is one experience that you will never repeat?
Trying to put together flat packed furniture myself. Those are hours of my life I won’t get back – and the cupboard door still doesn’t close properly!
Where was your most memorable holiday and what made it so memorable?
Taking my mum to New York for her 60th birthday. We were upgraded to 1st class on the flight and had the most amazing time exploring NYC together being very touristy.
What is your next travel destination?
Italy, driving along the Amalfi coast.
What dream do you still want to fulfil?
I would love to go on a safari to see incredible animals in their natural habitat. I think that would be a very humbling experience.
What is the best way to get in touch with you?
Tell us one fun fact about yourself that not many people know.
I was once a ball girl at the tennis tournament at The Queen’s Club. My parents recorded hours of TV to spot me!
