Sheila's Profile

Experience Summary

I enjoy socialising with friends and meeting new people and have an outgoing nature. I love going to the cinema and eating out but am also sporty and enjoy being outdoors whether skiing, sailing or hiking. I have two young daughters and a black and white cat so home life is also important and I enjoy cooking and gardening as part of that. I have a wide range of interests and an ecletic taste in books and what I watch on television. I have travelled widely and lived and worked abroad in France, Chile and Hong Kong. I speak a little Spanish and a smattering of Cantonese, enough to direct a taxi to where I need to go and to order food in a restaurant. Professionally I have worked in PR and Marketing for most of my career but took a break from full time work five years ago to concentrate on raising my children. I am interested in securing contract and promotional jobs to fit around the demands of family life. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
