Personal Insight: An orchestra double bass player, she loves to perform live music and enjoys the freedom it provides, by giving her the opportunity to focus on one thing without being distracted. She loves her dog Toby, who inspires her when he approaches every day with the same vigour. Once a champion debater, she loves a puzzle and is somewhat obsessed with crime and mystery TV shows which, by her own admission, takes up far too much of her time.
