What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned in your career so far?
Don’t compare yourself to others. There will always be people who are doing better and more than you, but ultimately everyone is still winging it to some degree behind the scenes. So you do you, and let them do them!

What is your favourite era?
Definitely the 80’s! The hair, the clothes, the music and the sassy attitudes.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
I would love the ability to clone myself into lots of Tammy’s so I could tick everything off my to do list every day!


What is your go-to karaoke song?
Mamma Mia - reminds me of the days when the whole club would belt out the lyrics together, plus the octave range means you can sing it easily without being completely out of tune!

What’s your ideal day off?
Post pandemic, a relaxing massage in the morning at a health spa, a delicious alfresco lunch with my friends (hugging, sharing drinks and food, no masks), an afternoon out with my kids at a local fun fair (leaving the hand sanitiser at home), a home cooked dinner at my parent’s house, followed by late night cocktails at a bustling bar with my husband!

What country would you love to visit?
Kenya, desperate to visit their safaris.


Who is the funniest person you know?
Hate to admit it - my husband… after me, of course.

Who is one historical figure you would love to have a tea with?
The Obamas, I think Michelle would have lots of funny stories to share and I love Barack’s voice (who doesn’t!)

Who is one historical figure you would love to have a cocktail with?
Marilyn Monroe - I want to know if she really had the affair with JFK.

How do you start your morning?
Putting a pillow over my head to block out the sound of my kids shouting at me to wake up.


What is the best gift you have ever received?
A surprise trip to Monaco with my husband for our five year anniversary that we never got to do because of Covid :(

What’s the most useless talent you have?
Cooking - as in, I have no talent whatsoever in cooking.

What is one piece of advice you would go back and tell your 15-year-old self?
Stop crushing on that boy at school who will never like you back, he will go bald and fat in 20 years and you will be the one laughing.

How do you take your tea/coffee?
Keep the teabag in the whole time with a double shot of milk.

What fashion trend needs to be brought back?
I asked my 23 year old trendsetting sister and she said the mullet so I’m going with that.


What’s your favourite thing to treat yourself to?
Peace and quiet. I’m easily pleased!

What is your favourite movie of all time?
The Greatest Showman - Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, incredible soundtrack, what more can you ask for!

What’s your favourite food?
Anything my mum makes.

If you had to choose...sweet or salty breakfast?
Salty! Eggs Benedict, Shakshuka, ham and melted cheese croissants just to name a few.

If you had to choose...chocolate or vanilla?
Mint choc chip??
