I like to think of myself as a very conscientious person when it comes to my working life. I’m very fortunate in that I can say that I love my job and coming to work each day is enjoyable and allows me to constantly learn, grow and develop my skills. I recently completed a diploma with the Open University, something which I had wanted to achieve since having to leave university the first time around through ill health. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and we both love football, particularly Barnsley Football Club where we both have season tickets. It’s always important to have a work/life balance.
