Life before McCreas

I have worked in the Financial Services industry since I was 19 years old, after studying at Caledonian University, starting work as a receptionist before joining McCreas in April 2004. Prior to this, I had taken six months to travel to Hong Kong, Shanghai, and New Zealand. 

 

Favourite thing about working for McCreas

What I enjoy most about working for McCreas is my extremely friendly colleagues and that we all have the same goal – to be the best that we can be for our clients and the business at large. I also love the fact that no day is the same; there is no such thing as a typical day when it comes to dealing with property, which makes things more exciting and keeps me on my toes!

Out of the office

In my free time, I enjoy travelling and experiencing new cultures. I also enjoy taking part in and following sports activities, particularly a keen follower of Glasgow Warriors Rugby. I enjoy keeping fit and active;  in recent years I took on the challenge of the Glasgow 10k run, and in September 2017 I ran the RoadBlock Run for Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland. 

Fun fact

I would love to visit Machu Picchu
