As a self-confessed crazy cat lady, Dee is our office animal lover. When she’s not hard at work in the office, you’ll generally find Dee involved in some sort of animal activity, whether it be curled up with her cat & a good book or something more wild like attending one of our local attractions to play with tigers or swim with dolphins.

When Daisy is not hard at work you will find her at the local park out-running Border Collies and collecting sticks 10 times the size of her.
