When I’m not busy helping you be Your English Self you’ll probably find me at home, reading, drinking tea and eating chocolate. I might also be doing yoga (not while drinking tea!) trying to keep up my new “hobby” of running, or deciphering the names of the furniture in IKEA (got to make the most of language learning opportunities!
Home is Galicia or “green Spain” (it rains a lot!) I live in a small village with views of the Portuguese mountains (I’m super lucky to have another country and culture on my doorstep.) I live with my partner, who grows organic fruit and veg, my two kids, Suni our dog and Jango Bob our cat.
My other home is Bradford in the UK. I’ve lived in Spain for more than 20 years but I’m still a Yorkshire lass (“girl” in Yorkshire speak) at heart!
My third home is the world! I’m a culture junkie. I’ve been lucky to work in some amazing countries, discover new cultures and meet some fantastic people over the years.
A random fact about me is that I’ve worked at the same language academy in Portugal as J.K Rowling aka as creator of Harry Potter (just not at the same time.) Another random fact about me is that I am nowhere near as rich as J.K Rowling!
