I would love to become a Mortgage Adviser one day.

I love the people – it’s nice to come to work and smile and laugh, even when you at your busiest. The company has a great work and social ethic. It is really refreshing.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I once took part in an unsuccessful world record attempt for fitting as many pickled onions in my mouth as possible. In the end, I was 3 short!
