What do you like the most about your job? 

Well it’s only my first week but I can safely say so far, the people in the team are the best part. When you work with nice and very talented people at what they do, anything can be achieved. From a role perspective, I love innovation and finding solutions to problems.

Nigella Lawson, Michelle Obama and David Attenborough

What did you do before joining Pinta? 

My background is in recruitment, I had a go at running a company with my parter for a short while, and before Pinta I chose to invest in my skills so I pursued a degrees in Innovation and Design Thinking, Change Management, Project Management. At the moment I’m working on completing my HR degree.

What other profession would you like to try for a day?

I’d love to be a pastry chef, garment designer (I love to sew) or a farmer (on a posh farm though ☺️).

What are your hobbies? 

Gardening, sewing (historical embroidery as well), digital illustrations and cooking.
