Tell us about you (What drives you)
I love to learn! The beautiful thing about life is that not one single person knows everything. No matter what situation you are in or who you are surrounded by, there is something to be discovered... if you look hard enough.
Tell us a fun fact about you I'm not sure how 'fun' this is, but I couldn't touch my toes at all until I made it my mission during the lockdown. I'm pleased to say I smashed that goal and have joined the 'can touch toes' club with honours.
What is your biggest fear? Flying. It just doesn't sit well with me. I have to suck it up though because I love to travel!
Why did you join Tailify? The people, the vision & the ethos of the company massively inspired me. I'm feeling very excited about what the future holds.
What is your proudest accomplishment? Doing a six-hour 'spin-a-thon' for charity. I would not recommend it to anyone... spin is not an endurance sport!
If you could give your younger self 1 piece of advice, what would it be? It's all about the 1% gains. Those small but positive 1% actions you take now can (and will) unlock some truly monumental shifts in the future.
What is the single most valuable thing you’ve ever learned? Not to judge people's behaviour in relation to yourself. 95% of the time it's got nothing to do with you!
If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, alive or dead, who would they be? Dua Lipa, Annie Mac, Professor Green & Toddla T. To be honest, I've always just wanted to try and be their mates.
My secret passion is…/ guilty pleasure Finding new and exciting flavour combos to cook with... mango & chorizo porridge anyone?!
In the next 5 years, the biggest thing I want to achieve is… It's pretty difficult to plan for five years ahead, but as long as I'm moving forward every single day I'll be pleased.
What is something most people don’t know about you? I hate fish. Actually, most people know this, but I just wanted to reiterate it again.
How do you think your colleagues will describe you in one year? An out and out coffee addict who is up for a good laugh (...hopefully not at my expense)
Who is your favourite influencer and how have they influenced you?
I love hockey and I'm in awe of the GB hockey team, especially Alex Danson! If she recommends a brand, I'm sold. If you don't know her or haven't read her story, go take a look. She's an inspiration!
