Career Highlight: Being a class of 2018 Cornwall ’30 Under 30’ winner. 

Fun Facts: I absolutely love finding new coffee shops/brunching spots across the county. There are so many to choose from! 

I’ve been involved with ballet and dancing practically since I could walk, and at age five was the youngest member of the Mounts Bay Lace Makers where I later went on to become a junior committee member.

Previously I volunteered at the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology in Reading, which houses one of the largest collections of Greek ceramics in Britain.
