Are you involved with any charities or do any volunteer work?
In April of this year I ran my first marathon in London, raising over £3200 for Children with Cancer UK. I finished in a time of three hours, 58 minutes and six seconds. Running is a keen hobby for me and I try to run during at least one lunchtime a week which I think is good for refreshing the mind. I’ve now signed up for my second marathon in Brighton in April 2018!
Where is your favourite place?
Sydney, Australia has an important place in my heart as I lived and worked there for 9 years with my family and have some amazing friends there. The city has some iconic structures such as the Harbour Bridge and Opera House and there are some amazing beaches such as my local, Manly Beach. Not forgetting the brilliant weather too!
What inspires you at work?
