What does SEO mean to you?
SEO is about achieving the best exposure possible for my clients. It means marketing their business in a way that ensures their target audience finds them the easy way online, with just a few key strokes.

Why does SEO appeal to you so much?
SEO appeals to me as I love achieving results for my clients and having the opportunity to help my client’s businesses grow and succeed. In this highly competitive economic state we are in, it’s important for my clients to stand out from the rest and I feel privileged to be a part of that process.

When you are not up to your elbows in keywords what do you do?
I love spending time with my husband and two young children. When I have time on my own, I enjoy riding my horse, playing netball, cooking, shopping and anything else that involves socialising and being active!

Three things that make you tick?
Firstly, the countryside as there is something very soothing about getting back to nature and being away from the hustle and bustle.Secondly, endurance riding as there’s nothing more satisfying than having mutual trust in an animal and travelling over many kilometres together.

Lastly, the opportunity to be creative, I love painting and anything else art related.

Favourite food?
I am a food-aholic! I enjoy many cuisines including authentic Middle Eastern, Asian and Italian.

If you could host a dinner with any three people, who would you choose and why?
Oprah Winfrey for her wisdom and beautiful nature, my late grandfather for his hilarity and my best friend as we haven’t lived in the same country for a few years now and I miss her dearly!

If given the chance to skip work for a day, how would you spend the entire day?
I would get up really early and go for a ride through the forest, then a late morning picnic at the play ground with my little family.

In the afternoon, I would go to a day spa and indulge myself in some relaxation and finish off the day with a glass of French champagne and a dinner party with my family and friends.
