Where are you from?

I’m originally from sunny Spain, but my dad is Scottish, so I have dual citizenship (very handy, to be honest).


What have you done in your career until now?

I graduated from the University of Swansea in the summer of 2021, so my career has barely started! So far, I’ve worked for big corporations like Virgin Atlantic and now terptree. I was also a student ambassador during my studies which let me meet many cool people and participate in various events at the University.


What is your proudest achievement?

Moving to a different country all on my own has to be the top, but working while getting a first in my degree during a pandemic has to be second place.


What did you want to be when you were younger?

I wanted to either be an archaeologist or an actor because I was obsessed with the Lara Croft movies, and I thought it would be awesome to do either.


What are you reading?

The Wheel of Time: The Great Hunt.


What surprises people about you?

I have a never-ending list of hobbies, including drawing/painting and knitting.

What’s your favourite quote?

Things turn out best for people who make the best of how things turn out – John Wooden

What is your favourite thing about being a Booking Coordinator?

My degree was a BA in Modern Languages, Translation and Interpreting, so it’s lovely to use some of those skills as a Bookings Coordinator. Also, building strong professional relationships with interpreters and students.
