What’s your day-to-day work routine?
I’m an early riser. My day starts at 5am, so I can exercise before work. I usually arrive at the office between 7.45am – 8.00am and am greeted by a cuppa. That’s probably the only thing that is routine in my working day, which can consist of meetings, reading reports and reviewing documents. Every day is different.
What’s the most interesting thing about your work?
The variety – no two days are the same. I can plan for the following day and it can all change overnight.
What are you watching/reading/listening to?
I like a good drama and have just enjoyed watching Safe on Netflix. I’ve recently read the Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons and would highly recommend it.
What are the last three accounts you followed on social media?
- States of Guernsey
- #Guernsey Together
- Coronavirus Travel Updates
When are you happiest?
From a work perspective, seeing the team working together to succeed. From a personal perspective, when I get the work/life balance right.
What keeps you awake at night?
I try to leave worries at the bedroom door, though not always successfully. I do have a habit, however, of waking up in the night thinking of things I need to do the following day and having to make a note of them so as not to forget.
What traits do you most like in yourself?
What you see is what you get.
What traits do you dislike in other people?
Dishonesty, a lack of integrity and playing people off against one another.
What do you do to relax?
It may not sound like relaxing but I do like a good work out
How do you measure success?
Loyalty. Team work. A well-balanced life
