Give us a brief summary of your current role/career history with Atlas so far
I’ve worked with Atlas for 10 years now. I started in January 2011 as an Accounts Assistant and was promoted within the first 6 months to Management Accountant, producing the profit & loss accounts for the hotels amongst other things. Then, 2 years ago I was promoted to Finance Team leader - wonder where I will be in another 10 years!
Tell us about your life outside of work, what would people normally find you doing?
Outside of work, under normal circumstances, I spend a lot of time with my Nieces and Nephews and taking lots of holidays. I was lucky to fit Mexico, Disney, Spain and New York in just before Coronavirus hit and I can’t wait to start seeing the world again once we are allowed. But currently, my out of work activities include Netflix and lots of cooking.
What are you most grateful for in 2020?
2020 made me more grateful for my partner, my family and my friends. You really don’t know what you have got until its gone and I can say I have definitely felt that this year with not being able to see family & friends.
Which one of the Atlas values means the most to you and why? (Be Guest Focused, Work Together, Show Commitment, Strive for Quality)
Work together & strive for Quality are the two Atlas Values that mean the most to me. Building good relationships with my colleagues makes it easier to work together to produce quality accounts for the hotels.
If you had to pick one song that got you through 2020, which song would it be?
I couldn’t pick just one song but I could pick one artist and that would be Alanis Morissette – I was supposed to go and see her in concert in 2020 but that was cancelled – it's currently rescheduled for October this year so fingers crossed it goes ahead.
