 Personal Interests

I am a warm, friendly and a creative worker. I have always been very committed to anything that I have been involved in, including the dramatic arts, in which I have shown an interest from a very early age. I can relate well with children and have worked with them regularly as part of Scout and Guide groups and while working on a summer camp in America. I am a keen outdoor sportswoman, who regularly enjoys going skiing, running and playing football. I have also taken part in a number of fun runs to raise money for charity, most recently the London Marathon.
