Pen Portrait:

I relish a challenge and love the opportunity to take something that’s a bit disorganised, and turn it into something that’s streamlined and consistent. I see myself as the oil in the machine, making everything work as it should – smoothly, with as little friction as possible. I really enjoy planning and working out logistics too, making sure that meetings and events happen, and that they are both efficient and effective. I take great pride in ensuring that nothing gets missed, or forgotten on my watch. I care for people, and love being part of a great team, but I’m not a pushover. I also really enjoy working as a team member, and staying one step ahead of those who rely on me – I always have their back.
