I love writing the Seven days in... pieces for Monarch, as I feel they really get to the heart of a destination and are very well received by the client and audience.

I speak Spanish.

Swimming and baking are two of my favourite things to do.

Proud auntie to two nieces and two nephews - all currently under the age of four.

The people make Axonn great. I work with an awesome team.

I volunteer as a festival steward for Oxfam and I was part of the Bangor 2008 University Challenge team.

I went to Bangor University in north Wales. Tiny, but beautiful.
