I really enjoy keeping fit, in particular going to exercise classes, horse riding and running. I have completed three half marathons and would love to run in the London Marathon or the Sydney Marathon.
I am a massive animal lover and working for a firm with 5 resident dogs who greet you with excitement and cuddles every morning is my idea of the perfect work environment!
