22 Jun Staff Spotlight
What date did you join Montgomery? April 2022
What is the best & worst part of the job so far? Best: The office having a collective English sense of humour. Priceless. The worst part is not being the funniest person in the office.
Where did you grow up? The UK and Sydney.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? The owner of a pony camp.
Who is your mentor or greatest inspiration? Mrs Doubtfire. “Carpe Dentum. Seize The Teeth.”
What is your greatest achievement? Being a part of some incredible female professionals’ career growth. I am a big believer in supporting women to get the best opportunities possible. We may not run the world just yet, but Lordy we should!
What is your favourite book? ‘There Is Nothing For You Here’ by Fiona Hill, a British-American foreign affairs specialist and academic who grew up in a working-class mining town in the North of England.
What is your favourite movie? The Parent Trap and The Blind Side. Sandra Bullock is my girl crush.
What is your favourite board game? Backgammon. *Fancy boards only.
If you could be someone else for a day who would it be? (living or dead) Fiona Hill. Or Mrs Doubtfire.
Best holiday you’ve been on? Any one where my A-typical best friends planned it. Gotta love a holiday excel spreadsheet that you didn’t have to do yourself.
What three items are a must-have if you were stuck on a desert island? Boris Johnson’s Head of Communications – if he can continuously get Boris out of sticky situations then he can get me off an island. (Or at the very least be a great source of gossip and entertainment.) Sunscreen – still have to fight off those fine lines and sun spots, and my phone – so I can still check in with all my fabulous candidates and clients.
If you won the lotto what would you do? Buy a very nice island. Throw a party. Invite Boris’s Head of Coms, Fiona Hill and Mrs Doubtfire.
On the other side of COVID, what will you not take for granted? Being able to tell my significant other what ‘I got up to today’ because we no longer live in each other pockets.
