How long have you worked at Hoffman Kelly and what brought you to that position?

1 year 2 months. I wanted to work somewhere with a strong team culture, and have variety in the work I do.

If you could invite three people for dinner, dead or alive, who would they be and why?

Jacinda Ardern – I think she’s wonderful, and the way that she has dealt with the terrible situation in Christchurch has been an example for all politicians to follow.

Bob Monkhouse – the king of the one liners.

Keith Moon – just to get the party started.

What’s the best advice you have been given?

Be kind – you don’t know what other people are going through.

What hobbies/interests do you have outside of work?

I love cooking, Japanese horror films and I collect vintage shaving equipment. I also love going out on my scooter with my children.

Complete this sentence: If I wasn’t working at Hoffman Kelly I would be….

Running a Mexican restaurant and cocktail bar in the city.

What do you love about your job?

The people I work with – when I come in each day I wish everyone individually a good morning, because I genuinely hope that they have one.

Something you might not know about me is that……

I took my driving test 7 times.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

Lewis Hamilton, but only if it’s a race day.
