What is the best part of your job?
Getting to meet lots of interesting people from so many walks of life from artists to legislators to community leaders.
If you could give one piece of advice to yourself at the start of your career what would it be?
Slow down! Not everything will come to you at once.
What is an act of kindness that you will remember forever?
Getting nominated for the Women of the Future Awards. I would never have done it myself. It's been so amazing, I am now telling the amazing women in my life to apply too.
What is your favourite quote?
Life is very short and what we have to do must be done in the now.
- Audre Lorde
If you could invite two people to dinner (dead or alive!) who would they be and why?
Hypatia, to learn from her what it was like being an educated woman and professor in Egypt/Roman Empire; and Harriet Tubman to listen to the stories on the Underground Railroad.

What is the best part of your job? ...
Freedom! As a business owner and angel investor, the ability to shape and direct my work every day, which mostly involves recruiting, engaging, learning from and developing great people and networks.

What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is seeing the results of hard work. Whether this be an initiative or project we have done internally or seeing the conclusion of a big case and talking with our client. I spend quite a lot of time in meetings and working on strategy within the firm so these are the times I can sit back and enjoy the hard work which has got us to that point.

There is nothing I take more pride in than when I receive a letter from a client or a member of their family to say how much we have helped and what we have been able to do to better someone’s life. It is a cliché but those are the things which really count in the end.

What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is the huge variety of amazing people I meet and interact with every day; from the generous givers of time, skills and money to my fantastic, dedicated team to the inspiring families we work with who with a small leg up are working their own way out of poverty.  It is an incredible privilege to be both inspired and humbled every day.
