I’ve been at Euro London since: 2009

About: I have been at Euro London since I graduated from a Combined Modern Languages degree in 2009 and have worked my way up from a Temporaries Recruitment Consultant to Country Director. When I am not working or being ‘Mum’ to my son I love to travel and my favourite type of holiday is hiking up mountains in Canada. I am a keen Yoga enthusiast but definitely some way to go before I perfect the crow pose!

Fun fact: I have a 1st class degree in level one British Sign Language and I was a Lance Corporal in the Army Cadets at the age of 16
