I’m a doer who can also research, plan and manage. I love to work as part of a team but also happy on my own. Not knowing what is coming next but be being prepared for it, is how I like to operate.

I love making a difference, being busy, being creative but I also have an analytical and logical mind too … so put these all together and I think I’m in the perfect profession for me.
