“I am very fortunate to live within walking distance of the sea, on a beautiful stretch of the South Coast, and enjoy dinghy sailing, kayaking, dog walking, bike rides, crabbing, and pub lunches with my children and husband. In my own time, I enjoy swimming and Pilates to help maintain my own well-being, as well as catching up with friends over coffee.”
