Why did you join the lang cat?

I joined the lang cat when Lockey got in touch to say they were looking for a PA for Mark P. I’d taken VR from Aegon a month before and I was keen that my next job wouldn’t be in another large organisation. When I met up with Mark I really like the sound of the lang cat and what they were doing within the industry, so I kind of thought I’d like to become a lang cat if they’d have me. Lucky for me, my beauty and wit won them over and here I am.

What is your role at the lang cat?

PA to Mark, office manager and chief nagger about keeping the kitchen tidy.

If you could fix one thing in the financial services industry what would it be?

Make things much simpler to understand cos everything seems to be awfy complicated.

Who would be at your dream dinner party?

Calvin Harris, Morgan Freeman and Billy Connolly

If you could only listen to one album forever more what would it be?

It would have to be one of the Now compilation albums because I don’t like listening to a whole album by the same artist – easily bored/fickle. I’m deeply uncool as well, I know.

Which cartoon character would you most like to swap places with for the day?

Jessie from Toy Story because I sort of fancy Woody.
