What achievement are you most proud of?
Being a successful businesswoman and mother in a male-dominated IT world.

Skills shortage of new starters. What three things could you not live without?
My mobile phone, photos of family and family holiday time.
What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?
Any time I need to provide a photo of myself!
What do your family think you do all day?
Boss people around.
Who is your ultimate celeb crush?
Hong Kong Phooey. OK, Richard Gere.

Restaurateur to combine my creativity and love of food.
