Tell us something unusual about yourself
I have OCD, oh and I have jumped out of a plane.

If you could live anywhere in the world, apart from Weston, where would you choose?
I would live in New York because it reminds me of the movies.

You’re in charge of the world. What’s the first rule you’d bring in?
First rule I would bring in would be to try and stop the unnecessary killing of animals for cosmetics and fashion clothing like UGGS/fur coats.

If you were a biscuit, what biscuit would you be? And why?
If I were a biscuit I would be a hobnob, strong and dependable.

Dogs vs. Cats? Why?
Dogs. They normally tell you when they are going to attack… Cats just go for the jugular.

If you had to eat in one local restaurant every night for a month, where would you choose?
Demetris in Weston – lots of choice.

If you could be trapped in a lift with any person (or animal) – dead or alive – who would you choose?
Trapped in a lift with David Attenborough… He would never bore you.

If we were to ask your work colleagues to describe which animal you are most like, what would they say?
Animal? No idea what they would call me… Prob not something nice!!! Can’t answer.

What music is the Golden Valley office loving right now?
We aren’t allowed music at GVV, but personally I’m liking Ed Sheeran. 

What is your favourite time of day in the Golden Valley office? And why?
Favourite time of day is when all the operations are done, clients have been called and we know the majority of work is done. 

What is the funniest animal-related incident that has happened in the Golden Valley offices?
Animal incident is when a dog had been in the practice all day. Walked out with the owner and then ran back in and poo’d on the floor, then left again. Basically gave us the V’s!!
