I was very proud of how we were able to respond during the first lockdown of the pandemic to pivot to telehealth to help our customers stay open and patients continue to access care.

When borders open, name your dream travel destination:
Skiing Chamonix in Europe.
To wrap this up, let’s end with a personal recommendation:
I recommend checking out your local hiking trails to really see what is in your backyard. I found it surprising, the beauty of the countryside so close to the city I’ve lived in for 40 years and never realised we had.
