Outside of work I like to keep myself busy and like many at FHP, I enjoy sport.  I am a member of a local women’s hockey team, enjoy spending time walking in the local countryside and I like to hit the slopes in the Alps for some skiing when I can.  Aside from sport, I enjoy trying out the many independent coffee shops, restaurants and bars throughout Nottingham at the weekends.  I also love to travel and I am always looking for a new corner of the world to explore.
