I  have recently joined PureBody Health as the Clinic Secretary, an amazing position alongside an unbelievably positive team.....but hey this is boring, let’s talk about the good stuff!! Recently, my husband and I decided to take a six-month career break to fulfil a life time dream of travelling some of the world at our leisure. Here are some of my highlights...

Final Thoughts: As I get older my main goal in life is to try to be happy and to embrace every day that passes. I enjoy the sun shining, blue skies, a glass of chilled Prosecco and a good book. Oh and of course Las Vegas, I enjoy that the most!!! Favourite Quote: “Thankfully, persistence is a great substitute for talent.” ― Steve Martin.
