Spending a summer’s day by the river chilling is just one way of relaxing for this Senior Account Director whose job takes her around the world.

What I like about London is … the variety, I’ve lived here for 10 years and I am constantly discovering new places and things to do and still meeting some real characters.I love the theatre and I am fortunate  enough to work in the West End so have all the theatres  on my doorstep. Summer time in London is my favourite especially spending a summer’s day on Clapham  Common or at the many bars along the river.

What infuriates me about London is … that not all the people I love in the world live here! Oh, and that it occasionally rains.

My work day … is very varied. We produce a global customer magazine and are currently doing a lot of digital work, which is really exciting. I travel a lot for work visiting clients in Europe, US and Japan which keeps things interesting.

I relax by … letting my hair down on the dance floor always does the trick.

I love my job … because of the people I work with. I’ve met some great people and made some fantastic friends.

My work/life balance is … pretty spot on – I work hard and play hard both in equal measures!

I miss South Africa’s … music scene. I occasionally listened to YFM on the web but it’s just not the same. I missed being in South Africa over the World Cup, it was such an amazing  time for the country, I would loved to have experienced it.

I would like … to move to Bath and have a holiday home in Camps Bay, Cape Town.

Best of all would be … to have the above and a villa in Ibiza thrown in for good measure!

To sum up … whilst a South African at heart, London has become my home.
