My passion for the company has never waned and I am proud to return in the new role of Director of Strategic Partnerships, where my focus will be on business development.
What is something people don’t know about you?
I have been a professional actress, I enjoy driving fast and I used to work closely with Father Christmas.
What is your favorite food?
Chinese and birthday cake.
The most annoying thing in the world according to me is:

What is your favorite place in the world to be?
Next to a good friend, preferably on a beach.
