What is your proudest accomplishment (either personal or professional)?

Purchasing my own Property this year was a proud accomplishment. Taking Part in UKWCB (White Collar Boxing) and strictly come dancing and raising money for charity has to be up there also!

What do you like most about your job?

I enjoy making clients happy and receiving great feedback but the thing I like most about my job is getting to see the team every day. We are all very close friends and we always support each other.

What do you like least about your job?

 Sometimes the days can be long and it may feel like there isn’t enough time in the day but it’s worth it when good feedback is received and your clients are happy.

 What is the best gift you’ve ever given/received?

 I’m lucky to have received many gifts in life so I couldn’t pin point one in particular. I do think life is a gift and everyday is a blessing.

Similarly I’ve given a lot of gifts, I’m definitely the best gift giver!

What does your ideal day look like?

Waking up early and fresh and with a caramel coffee, having a productive day at work followed by a good gym session and finishing the day with a nice glass of white or red and a film.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to train in the gym and spend time with friends and family but at the moment I’m renovating my house by myself… it’s a big task!

What is your dream job?

 I love my job and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else but if I had to I’d like to work in comedy, I’d say I’m pretty funny.

What was the most interesting case you have dealt with at work?

GDPR! I can’t disclose details! I have been lucky enough to purchase a variety of different properties for a variety of different clients however.

Where is one place you’d love to travel to?

I’d love to go to the Maldives and stay in a sea hut!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

Worrying is like a rocking horse, it takes up your time but gets your nowhere. Live everyday like it’s your last and ignore the opinion of those that don’t matter.
