If you were not a Transformation and Change Ninja, what job would you do?
This sounds really cheesy, but I honestly don’t know! I am very fortunate, I absolutely love what I do!
I would probably do something working with animals…..or an estate agent as I’m essentially very curious (i.e. nosey) and I love looking ‘round other people’s homes!
If you were given a day off work where would we find you?
My favourite thing to do is to pack up a picnic, grab the dog and go on day long hiking adventures. It could be in the woods, on the Downs, by the sea…..it doesn’t matter as long as it is out in nature!
What can you do that no one else in the office can do?
I can read people’s energy.
If you could go back in history to a specific date or time, what would it be?
I would go back to the 40’s/50’s to meet my parents when they were children.
Where in the world would you most like to visit?
One of the things on my bucket list is to stay on a ranch in Montana and be a cowgirl for a week!
