Growing up in the small skiing town of Churwalden, it soon became clear to me that I wanted to explore the big wide world. After my business apprenticeship working in the insurance industry, California was in my sights and I lived there for almost two years. I then went to Majorca, where I worked as a sports leader in a hotel. It was there that I met my husband from London, and I am now the proud mother to two grown-up daughters. For me there is nothing better than when the whole family is sitting together on the ski lift. I keep myself fit by skiing, hiking, going to the gym and working in the garden.

My main priority is always to enjoy what I do. I worked for 14 years in various roles in tourism, sales, marketing and recruitment. Being the managing director of a furniture business and co-founder of a call centre also formed part of my career.

In 2001 I founded the company callcentric, now known as IBEX, and my focus at that time was on telephone training and sales training courses. Since then, my range of services has expanded to include personal development. The traits that distinguish me from others include following the unconventional path, spontaneity and the courage to take on new challenges.

I love my job and love helping people to get the best out of themselves.
