Suzanna enjoys keeping fit and finds it helps if she has a fitness goal or target to strive toward. This has resulted in her competing in several triathlons as well as climbing Ben Nevis (the highest mountain in the UK) to raise money for research into Alzheimer’s Disease and running the London Marathon for the Child Bereavement Society. Her guilty pleasure is chocolate covered strawberries with Prosecco.
