  1. Why did you choose to join the Neylons team?

Neylons’ reputation for innovation and its strong emphasis on employee development caught my attention in the early days. I wanted to be part of a dynamic team that values both people and results, and I could say that I grew up with the company.

  1. How would you describe your job to a bunch of kids?

Imagine I am like a football player in a big team. Everyone on the team has a special role, with unique skills and responsibilities, and my job is to ensure everyone works together, communicates and improves so we can win the game.

  1. What is your proudest moment at Neylons?

There are several. When we successfully completed a project ahead of schedule or passed an inspection, it showcased the true spirit of collaboration. Or when a team member gets promoted. Also getting a new contractor, and getting to start the project.

  1. What do you find the most challenging in your role?

      I guess balancing the immediate needs of the day-to-day operations with long-term strategic planning.

  1. If you could get a new skill in 10 minutes, what would it be?

      I believe that I would like to learn computer programming.

  1. How do you balance your career at Neylons and your personal life?

I am working to prioritise my time and ensure I set boundaries. It doesn’t always work and due to the business industry, unexpected happens quite often. I like planning weekends for my family.

  1. What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I often consider myself an open book. I have a passion for all things fast — from motorbikes and cars and planes. The flight particularly fascinates me, it’s captivating to watch planes and wonder how they operate.

  1. What would be three words to best describe you?

Dedicated, Innovative, Overthinker

  1. What’s the craziest thing you have ever done?

Probably buying a fast motorbike.

  1. What tv show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

Love Island

  1. What do you like to do on your days off?

Do you guys get days off? I love spending time with my family, playing games with the twins, exploring and enjoying nature when the weather permits.

  1. Motto or personal mantra?

Listen to your gut and find the way.

  1. What is on your bucket list?

I’d love to experience and witness the Northern Lights and do a bit of travel.

  1. Is there something that made you smile recently?

My twins laughter while we were playing outdoors together with our dog Ozzy brought an instant smile to my face.
