Varied senior posts in hospitality and travel and tourism most recently at Ellenborough Park near Cheltenham.
What inspired you to work in hospitality?
My grandfather was the chief accountant at Berni Inn’s and was part of the launch team so it’s in the blood I guess.
Who do you aspire to be like?
Hilary Clinton because everyone says I look like her!
Why Lucknam Park?
They offered me the job can we say that? It was time for a change and it is a truly beautiful hotel and I feel I can make a difference here.
When not in Lucknam how do you spend your time
Cycling with Cheltenham Dames, playing racket ball and yoga.
Poached salmon, new potatoes, asparagus.
Sport: watching and participating, travel and family
I cycled London to Paris to raise money for charity 5 years ago.
