Lives: Clifton, Ash­bourne

Mar­ried? Nope

Kids? Two neph­ews – and lots of god­chil­dren!

About you: Pass­ing my bus test at the age of 18, I ab­so­lutely love be­ing with peo­ple and mem­bers of the pub­lic, I have a great sense of hu­mour, fun and a big heart with a caring na­ture - I can be se­ri­ous when the need be! My life to­tally changed when I joined the Empire Ball­room Slim­ming World group in June 2014 and lost seven stone. I later be­came a con­sul­tant in 2015, run­ning groups in Derby and then put my PSV man­age­ment ca­reer on hold and be­came a team de­vel­oper and I ab­so­lutely love, help­ing peo­ple achieve their weight-loss dream.

Three things you like: Slim­ming World, coaches and buses, and be­ing so­cia­ble.

Three things you dis­like: Dis­loy­alty, up­set­ting peo­ple I love and care for, and ig­no­rant peo­ple

Are you an Up’ard or a Down’ard? Down’ard

Born and bred: I was born in Derby, but I’ve al­ways lived in Ash­bourne.

Fam­ily mat­ters: My Mother... she’s my world, rock and bessie mate! Mine and mum’s dog Bruno, my amaz­ing sis­ter Clare with my brother-in-law Stephen and two young gen­tle­men neph­ews Sa­muel and Char­lie, my Grandma Mee. Then my ex­tended fam­ily and amaz­ing I’m a Slim­ming World con­sul­tant Thurs­day evenings at Ash­bourne Hill­top Pri­mary and Nurs­ery School from 5pm and from 7pm and from Satur­day, Novem­ber 10 I’m go­ing to be tak­ing over the 8.30am St John’s Com­mu­nity Hall Slim­ming World group on Auc­tion Close and I man­age my amaz­ing team of con­sul­tants in Derby South East!

What are you best at? Big bear hugs, lark­ing about, be­ing a loyal friend and driv­ing a bus!

Your ideal hol­i­day: Just come back from it – Corfu! Ab­so­lutely loved the place. If you’ve not been, get your­self there! But I am look­ing for­ward to my sec­ond visit to Dis­ney­world and Or­lando next Easter!

Your favourite food: Well - you haven’t got enough pages in this pa­per! The beauty of foodop­ti­mis­ing free foods - yummy lasagne, shep­herd’s pie, chips, spag bol, leek and potato Pie, full English break­fasts, jacket potato with baked beans and mushy peas, meat or veg­gie quiches, break­fast muffins... yum yum yummy!!!

Who in­spires you? I am just me ev­ery day is a new day and I am who I am!

If you ruled the world, what is the one thing you would change? Gosh - I don’t know... There’s lots of things I could change, but the one thing that does stand out for me is cru­elty - hu­mans and an­i­mals...

What would it say on your epi­taph? I’ve got a bit of a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing late so it would have to be .... “It’s bet­ter to be late in this world, than the next”.
