Why did you begin working for ActionCOACH?
I have experienced the highs and lows of owning a business and I want to use my experience to help others enjoy the highs and avoid the lows.

Tell us something interesting about yourself…
I truly believe in the importance of continued self learning, so I have set myself the challenge of reading 100 business books each year. If you want to know which books to read let me know (or join our BookCLUB!)

What is your favourite poem?
IF, by Rudyard Kipling. If you have never read it, look it up and let me know if it strikes a chord with you too.

What are your favourite past times?
I love travelling and experiencing new cultures. I enjoy sharing these experiences with my husband Mike, twin girls Merryn and Issey, and our best friends who live in Australia.

I’m a keen jogger and I ran the London marathon in 2011. I’ve recently got my road bike out of the garage and am enjoying a couple of 20-40 mile cycles per week with my girl friends.

When I was younger I used to train with the London circus as a tumbler & trapeze artist, whilst everyone else went to relax with their friends after school I was getting the train to London!

What is your favourite holiday destination?
For me, nothing beats a get away to the Cornish coast! Especially in the winter so we’re able to take the dogs on the beaches with us.
