If you could travel back to one specific point in time, when would it be and why?

Ancient Egypt – as a child at school I always had a fascination with the ancient Egyptians, pyramids, Tutenkhamoon so would be great to travel back and see it for myself – as long as I could get back again!

What’s your favourite time of year and why?

I love the Autumn, seeing the lovely colours of the trees and looking forward to Christmas time.

What is the best part of your job?

The amazing children, families and other professionals that I get to work with.

What makes you happy?

Spending time with my family and friends.

What are your Hobbies and Interests?

I’ve taken up golf which can be really frustrating at times but helps me to get out in the fresh air, switch off from daily life and meet lots of different people. I also enjoy yoga and reading a good novel.
