Basic Spanish & I usually pretend I speak Portuguese!
My Interests outside work
I love baking (I have witnessed people shed a tear after a bite of one of my cookies, just saying). I enjoy walking in the countryside at the weekend and discovering other cultures.
My Favourite Brussels anecdote
Getting the EP to literally sort a ramp to access the speaker podium of one of their meeting rooms overnight for an event on business & disability the next day!
