With a quirky sense of humour, Louise is known to adorn the frames of unattended computers with personalised cartoons. Louise often dreams about her future farm with exactly four chickens and a homely alpaca aka “spitting giraffe sheep”. As a creature of nature at heart, Louise derives 75% of her energy from being outside and 25% from the profuse amounts of coffee she may or may not have consumed by 12pm each day.
