Life before CG Results:
Growing up in a little town on the Suffolk and Essex border my favourite activity was dancing – anything from tap to ballet to acro – see later. At school and in life my main interests centred around humanities; people and society so studying Sociology and Anthropology was a great choice for me, fuelled by a gap year travelling in S E Asia and exploring lots of different cultures.
Post Uni I stayed in Oxford as long as I could eking out the student life style but had a few interesting jobs, one of which was interviewing, but eventually London and a career beckoned.
Like most about my job
It involves working with everyone across the business so I have exposure to all elements of CG Results business and operations so I not only learn something every day but I also have learned a huge amount about what it takes to make a success of a growing business.

Dog or Cat?
I suppose I have to say dog because of Flo and Reggie, my two but I often think a cat would have been an easier choice.
Definitely ski-ing – this also chimes with my favourite CG Results event, our annual ski trip which I organise.

Life before CG Results: I always wanted to work in Finance – I used to watch all the films like Wall St so I managed to get to LSE to study and then into the graduate programme at Bear Stearns, luckily leaving before the bad days. It was a while before I got into the […]
Life before CG Results: Being brought up in the Midlands (of the UK) meant I got stuck into every activity going; from ballet and ballroom to every sport you might mention. At school I had more of a knack for the sciences and chose to do a Bachelor’s degree in Genetics. I soon figured the […]
