What is your job, when did you start, how did you come to be here?

My job title is Business Manager.  I started working at Small City in 2016 after a chance email to Nicki looking for a new challenge turned into my dream job!
 
My initial job was as a Digital Marketing Executive.  This was when it was just Nicki and myself in the office. Two years on and this evolved into being the business manager of a team of five and multiple freelancers! 
 
It's great to be around such talented, fun and positive people on a daily basis - like really!
What is the best thing that’s ever happened to you at work?
 
This is a difficult one... but the night we won the award for 'Most Enterprising Business' at the Association of Scottish Business Women National Awards was a pretty proud moment!
 
What is the best part of your job?
 
The Small City team of course! It's great to be around such talented, fun and positive people on a daily basis. The days that Colin's review makes me laugh out loud, or when we all come together to produce the amazing Small City Food and Drink mags is pretty awesome -  we don't call ourselves the A-team for nothing!
 
What signals starts of days off?
 
I always get the Friday feeling. I have a Whatsapp group called the 'Friday night Pint Club' and I will often go meet some of my friends for a few drinks and have a good laugh and catch up.
 
What might people be surprised to know about you?
 
I absolutely hate getting my picture taken! 
 
What's at the top of your bucket list?
 
I've never been to America and would love to go to New York at Christmas and re-live some of the iconic Home Alone moments! 
 
Who or what inspires you?
 
My family. We are all so different with different things going on, but i'm very proud and inspired by them all. I could go on and on about them all!
 
The day you’d love to live again – tell us!
 
I'm sure we all have days with loved ones that have passed that we would love to live out those moments with them again, but then I wouldn't like to live a day again incase I changed it! Memories are precious.
