Best thing about your job? Cheesy but working with the best bunch of people I could hope for; I look forward to every day. I believe happy teams equal happy clients.

Worst thing about your job? Spreadsheets. Necessary evil but bring me out in hives. I would like to coin a term for official phobia of them. Cellophobia?

Your desert island disc? If my iPhone & Spotify didn’t survive the waves, then Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. Never get bored and always hear something new in it.

Your desert island book? Something long and fascinating – one I haven’t read yet; maybe the Times Complete History of The World? May as well use the time to learn!

What’s your free time treat? What’s free time? Reading heavy broadsheets, playing with son, flying away, walking new paths, cooking new dishes, dancing, chatting to friends.

Favourite place? Seaside gives me sense of inner calm. Love cities like New York and London for their energy. Nothing like coming home to Cardiff though!

Pet hate? Rudeness, bad customer service, inflexible thinking, injustice, queues, lazy grammar, badly written signs, ignorance, negativity.

What makes you smile? My 6 year old son – every day. Cheesy but true. Also the sun, funny people, good food, music, new places, thoughtful surprises, good books.

Words of wisdom? “Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive.” – Anaïs Nin. And well within 140 characters!

Favourite place to eat? Hakkasan,Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant in Mayfair. Dim Sum to die for, great cocktails & Queen born in the same building fact fans!

Guilty pleasure? Buying dresses I love in two colours, handbags, Ocado iPhone app for on-the-go shopping list delivered to the door, bad rock ballads.

A secret you don’t mind sharing? I turned down brilliant PR jobs in Jamaica and Dubai because I was scared of being a Valleys girl abroad. I’d have been braver, looking back!

What couldn’t you live without? Mac Girl About Town lipstick, Amazon Prime membership, prescription sunglasses, green tea, rice cooker, noise cancelling headphones, notebook.
