    Association with NAA
    Joined the NAA July 2014

    Married to Einstein Rodrigues (yes, Einstein!). We met at University in London, both studying Economics. Our friendship continued over the last 25 years and we married in April 2012.

    I have a passion for rescuing dogs and we have just adopted Oscar, a cross-breed from Bulgaria.

    Love coastal walks and never tire of the sight, smell or sound of the sea.

    Member of a book (and wine appreciation) club. Both aspects are fully discussed and savoured at each meeting.

    Favourite football team
    Liverpool, Spurs and Everton – I like to keep the peace.

    Musical performer
    Have played the violin, guitar and tin whistle but I really excel at air guitar.

    The Sound of Music. It was my first cinema experience and I will never forget the excitement and spectacle.


    Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach is my all-time favourite. Have just finished reading ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling). It was superb and would highly recommend it.

    Best motoring moment
    Driving a friend’s Porsche very, very slowly!
