1 Describe your job in 140 characters!

I select (and occasionally write) and edit the material to publish on Soberistas.com, a social network site for worried binge drinkers. I manage the day-to-day running of the site, dealing with enquiries from our community. With 22,600 members, this entails a lot of work! I In addition, I take care of all the media interest in Soberistas, so often do TV, radio and newspaper interviews. I also write books on the subject of women and alcohol, and have an Amazon bestseller, The Sober Revolution, plus Your 6 Week Plan and Glass Half Full in print, all published by Accent Press.

2 What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a writer – I had my first book published at the age of 37, so I got there eventually!

3 What are you most proud of in your Career?

Establishing Soberistas.com – our community has helped thousands of women stop drinking and lead happier, healthier lives.

4 Which famous person inspired you at work and why?

I’m a massive Red Hot Chili Peppers fan, and when I first stopped drinking I needed a cool and sober role model to help me get over my initial fears that teetotal people were dull – Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of RHCP, inspired me in that way.

5 What & where is your favourite Networking event ?

NA

6 Where would you take a client for a ‘thank you ‘coffee or lunch in Sheffield ?

Nonna’s, Ecclesall Road – great food, brilliant service, and the best tiramisu I’ve ever had!

Venue, location, food recommendation?

7 What is your tip for beating stress at work?

Get into meditation – it works wonders.

8 What is your favourite way to relax?

Playing loud music whilst driving in the Peak District, spending time with my family, lounging around in the spa/steam room at the gym, meditating, reading books, and running.

9 What advice would you give to a young person setting out on their career path?

Find a career that you love – that way it will never feel like work!
