What was your first impression of Blackjack?
It’s busy, every day is different, lots of faces to remember.

A special moment at Blackjack…
Getting my first new client – Old Pulteney

What is a typical day at Blackjack like?
Hectic.. phone ringing, emails coming thick and fast, supplier meetings, WDF manager meetings, terminal walks, checking on promotions and teams, contacting new suppliers for sampling activities, sending photos, ironing out problems with sampling units & graphics etc, team trainings, sampling new products, quoting for new promotions, billing, organizing the new promotions with suppliers and airport managers…IT’s CRAZY, but I love it!!

One thing you probably did not know about me is…
I ran a café above a night club in Skiathos for a summer. The Greeks loved my home made cakes.
