Has JCI had any impact on your job/career/profession/business?
It has definitely given me the confidence to push myself at work and go for jobs that I would not normally go for. It has also really helped when looking for new roles and having the confidence in interviews etc.

Who is a leader you admire?
Richard Branson – he is not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them!

What’s your proudest achievement?
I would say that my proudest achievement was travelling with work on my own to the US and India, and also working out in the US for 3 months. It was such an incredible experience and I made so many friends and memories!

What’s your favourite biscuit and why?
Custard cream – I love the traditional biscuits for taste and how well they go with a cuppa

What is a good weekend to you?
Going for a nice walk out in Derbyshire and then having dinner by a fire in a local pub. Alternatively a weekend of netball with my mates

Tell us something crazy/dangerous/inspiring/unusual you have done.   
I had to save the life of the lady sat next to me on my flight to India as she passed out and was not breathing. I had to get help from the air stewardesses to find a doctor on-board to perform CPR

Thanks Katie!!
