What does a typical day involve?
All things finance. Raising and paying sales and purchase invoices, banking, reporting to the business, payroll, analysing data, credit control.
Where were you born? What brought you to Adido?
I was born in Chichester but moved in this direction before I was 2 years old. After University in Bristol and 5 years working in London I decided to settle down and buy a house. Where better place to be than here?
What do you remember about your first day at Adido?
Walking around and being introduced to everybody, forgetting everybody’s names but feeling so welcome and settling in immediately.
What is your favourite tool to help with your job?
Xero the accounting system. It allows me to do almost all of my work in one place. It’s really user friendly, and much more intuitive in comparison to other finance programmes. It also brings a bit of colour to my world of numbers.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
A chicken. The kind that roams free in the garden. When I understood that that was unlikely I then wanted to be a Helicopter Pilot. Now the idea terrifies me!
Where in the world would you most like to visit and why?
Japan. It’s so different from everything I have experienced. I love the buzz of a city, Tokyo looks crazy, but also the calm of the mountains and Buddhist temples. Not forgetting all that Sushi!
What is your #1 most played song on Spotify/iTunes?
Last year it was Old Thing Back by Matoma. This was the theme tune to my house renovations.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Potato. I LOVE all varieties of potato and all the different methods of cooking them.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
My Grandparents. I didn’t know any of them. I also revel in Social History and would love to get into their heads and truly understand how life was for them and how the decisions they made have affected me.
If you could choose a superpower, what would it be and why?
To fly, very quickly. So that I could visit friends and family all over the world after a day at work.
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
I climbed Mount Kenya aged 16. Whilst it was physically tough it was by far the most mentally and emotionally challenging thing I’ve ever done.
What is something you learned in the last week?
I really dislike answering questions/talking about myself!
What is your favourite website?
Pinterest. It’s great for recipes, home decor ideas, party planning and will be very useful in helping two of my closest friends plan their weddings this year.
What’s your party trick?
I can touch my nose with my tongue!
