My career in hospitality started as a part-time food runner in London alongside drama school studies. After a year of waitressing, I progressed into management, moved to Hertfordshire and joined Lussmanns in 2019. I am extremely proud to work for such a fantastic company with a strong and compassionate ethos. It is a great feeling to serve customers dishes which are made with love and care, and to work alongside such professional and passionate colleagues.
