Kenya is a beautiful country. I love exploring various parts of this country whenever an opportunity arises. The diversity ranges from Sunny beaches in Mombasa, A game drive in the Mara, Mountain hikes at Longonot or Mt. Kenya. All great places to unwind. If I am not travelling, I like spending time with my Dogs. They give a good reason to stay fit, through our (almost) daily jogs!

What is your personal passion (outside the office)?

The ocean, animals and plants 🙂

Perhaps this is because being outdoors or surrounded by nature is my favourite thing in the world. If I am not at the beach, or on a mountain on weekends, I am at a farm horse-riding, at home hanging with my cats or gardening. These all make for amazing teachers and down-time, good to recharge the batteries (and soul).
