Q: On a normal day, what does your role involve?

A: I don’t really have a normal day at JDC – my day can vary hugely depending on what part of the business I’m working in at the time. Normally, you can find me doing something creative whether that’s designing our brochures and printed media, creating documents for client presentations or working digitally on the website and on social media. I also help on the administration side of the business typing letters and reports and am one of the friendly voices you’ll hear if you ever ring our offices!

Q: If you could snap your fingers and become an expert in something, what would it be?

A: Oh that’s tough, dancing perhaps. The only dance I know is the macarena!

Q: Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?

A: I’m secretly quite a good musician. I play piano, clarinet, drums and I can sing.

Q: What is the best concert you’ve ever attended?

A: Muse at Wembley Stadium.

Q: What is the last book you read?

A: Elantris by Brandon Sanderson.

Q: If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?
