1230 TWC Bromley Host - I started my working life as a city banker and, during this time, was privileged to work in Cannes for a while. At the age of 30, I took a career break and travelled around the US and Europe. I also worked in Rome teaching English as a foreign language and, sold perfumes on a commission only basis and became the best saleswoman, earning a fulltime income, working only part time hours. When I returned to the UK, I studied floristry for 4 years and, whilst promoting my floristry services to a golf club, was asked if I supplied tropical plants – I said: ‘yes I do’ (I knew nothing about this industry!); I have been supplying plant displays to the corporate world for the past 22 years. In 2016, I started a business in Serviced Accommodation, which I run alongside my plants business and became a co-host for 1230 Bromley. I now also own a few properties with my husband. In my personal life, I am a wife and a mum, I sing opera and play the piano. I have also been on many self-development courses, one of which included running across a bed of hot coals….. unscathed!
