In 2001, she expanded her business consultancy practice to the emerging markets of Asia, splitting her time between her Malaysian and UK offices and homes.

Having moved back to the UK in 2018, she cherishes her life in the small village of Bray, Berkshire spending time on the Thames cooking and feeding family and friends. She loves the theatre, music, works hard and plays hard.
