What’s the most unusual or interesting hobby you have outside of work?   
I don’t have any interesting or unusual hobbies! Just gym classes and a taxi service running teenagers about… We do have a budgie though and she takes up time as she’s into everything and such a character!  

What is your favourite productivity hack or time management technique that helps you stay organised and focused?    

I have a list of jobs I tick off each day, and I plan projects in time blocks. I also have regular tea breaks and I’m flexible with work times – if I need to be off in the day then I will work at night to meet any deadlines as I am a bit of a night owl. 

 
What do you find most rewarding about your work?    
I find it rewarding when you see the finished project print, logo signage, advert, infographic or social media post and it looks great and the client is happy! Also, if the project is for a charity, it is extra rewarding to know you have helped to raise more money and awareness for a good cause.   

How do you like to relax after a day at work?    

I don’t get too much time for relaxing but when I do, it would be spending time with friends or watching a good drama series or crime documentary on TV. I also like to read novels but only really get a chance to read on holidays. 
  

Do you have any tips/hints on how to start the day on a positive note?   

A good gym session followed by a good breakfast then catch up on emails (delete junk), read the news or social media and make a start – make lists and tick off jobs as you do them.  

What’s your favourite Friday night dinner?    

Lasagne or curry.
