She tells Punchline-Gloucester.com editor Mark Owen about that 14-year route from joining Stagecoach's graduate programme to taking over as managing director of the company's newly merged West and Oxfordshire regions.

Her journey has taken her around the country in a variety of roles which have seen her in the engineering department, cleaning buses and getting behind the wheel.

Among the topics covered, she discusses the impact of the pandemic on the company and the challenges of attracting people back to public transport, what makes the ideal driver plus the company's culture, green ambitions, diverse portfolio and drive to recruit more women.
