What is your proudest career moment to date?
Making the scary leap from working as a normal interior designer to my current role. I’m so glad I did! I never would have imagined how much there was to learn and the amazing things I get to be involved in. I definitely am in my dream job.

If you weren’t in the business of furniture, what would you be/what would you be doing?
Something where I could talk to as many different people as possible. Maybe a therapist.
