Office administrator and payroll
I’m originally from Portugal and I was born in Lisbon.
I have worked as a waitress during my teenager years back Portugal, I then decided to move to England with my partner and my older daughter when I was 18 years old.
I started to work as a self-employed cleaner in a partnership for 7 years and then decided to change my career and started my AAT level 2 qualification which I finished successfully.
When I joined the Beans team as an apprentice I decided to complete my business administration apprenticeship and now Ii am working towards my Managers diploma.
I enjoy the outdoors a lot, and like to go to the gym regularly and to practice outside sports like football just for fun, I am a bit of a football fanatic being born in Lisbon, and I support my home team Benfica.
