I like taking things apart and putting them back together again, I see the big picture but I'm fascinated by the detail. Bringing people together, driving change, calmly dealing with whatever gets thrown my way and seeing it through to the end are all phrases used to describe me by those with experience of working with me.
And while I'm a strategist at heart, I've done the delivery too - and I'm never afraid to jump in. At the moment, I lead PR and Communications for a health and care company.
I started out when I was 11, determined to become a journalist but told "no, you can't do work experience" beecause of my age by the BBC and local papers, I came up with a way that I could do it anyway. After 'beating the local press at its own game' and winning an award for improving communication in my hometown of Rubery, I've been via coffee, research, banking, education, transport and health and care.
