I worked at a local deli and sandwich shop on a Saturday. Although my earnings were extremely modest, I would save up over a number of weeks and feel like a millionaire! I loved having my own little wage whilst still at high school.
Most treasured possession?
My Saint Bernard Heidi. Over 10 stone of pure love and fun. She makes me smile every day.
Favourite holiday destination?
Dominican Republic. My home away from home - I lived and worked there for a couple of years in my early 20s, hence my Spanish is very good.
I'm a huge Enrique Iglesias fan. Any of his songs really, I couldn't possibly pick one.
I love autobiographies, particularly by entrepreneurs. Duncan Bannatyne's Anyone Can Do It and Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike are my favourites.
Moneysavingexpert. With a head for figures and budgeting, I just love to find a bargain and tips to save money.
Tell us something we don't know about you?
I'm an upholstery enthusiast in my spare time. I attended a course recently to learn how to make a piece of furniture from just a wooden frame and this has encouraged me to upcycle a few pieces with confidence.
If you won the lottery what's the first thing you would buy?
A property somewhere hot. I'm a bit of a sun worshipper and would love to be able to spend at least part of the year somewhere warm.
