Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInEmail this to someoneShare on Google+



What do you do all day?

I keep Mark, and to some extent the other two Directors, on the straight and narrow; ensure actions from meetings are followed up on and deadlines are met.

What are you good at?

Spinning proverbial plates, Rummikub, diverting disaster, organising other people’s affairs and playing Sudoku with Mark’s diary.

What did you do before Stripe OLT?

I moved to the UK in 2003 and was lucky enough to land a job as PA to James Caan, of Dragon’s Den fame. After that I worked for a Hedge Fund before moving to Bath and co-founding an events company that specialises in mobile cocktail bars. My last job was at Dorothy House Hospice Care – which, as opposed to the general conception, is actually a very happy place.


Red wine, good food, my children going to bed on time, kicking autumn leaves into the air and open fires – in no particular order.


People doing 30mph in a 50mph zone, wet dogs, liars and offal.

Did you know?

I am a trained Spanish teacher.

Would Like To Meet

Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Stephen Fry… Perhaps all at the same time over a G&T?
