When not at work
Lara loves walking in the countryside and having done a lot of walking in Jersey is looking forward to finding some new walks in the UK. Lara also likes to stay active by running, horse riding and going to yoga and pilates classes. Lara is fond of animals and, as soon as she and her husband find a more pet-friendly home, Lara will be on a mission to find a cat (or two) to take home with her. Lara also enjoys listening to live music and eating out.
