Kati Attwood

Financial Controller – [email protected]

A student for life. Wish to keep exploring and challenging myself. Not afraid to be different. Strive for a greener & simpler life. Appreciate the little things in life, like the smell of freshly brewed coffee and nanny’s apple pie, the adventures in story books, long summer nights and the freshness of the Scandinavian sea. I dream of discovering more countries, cultures and learning different languages.

What I love: The view from the top of a mountain or the discovery of what is just the other side of the next hill. Watching Box sets a series at a time or a Film that surprises you as the story unfolds.  Spending time with Friends and Family.  Watching team sports when the action goes extreme. A good book or a story told by a stranger.  Life is there for living and company along the way makes it more exciting.
