Nemesia loves her job as Learning and Devevlopment Manager with Chaucer Insurance. "I think what I enjoy most about my job is the people and the satisfaction of helping them". When she was younger she was a gymnast and spent much of her time competing which, she says, meant that she did not have time for a lot of dreams. She has achieved everything she wanted to and wants to continue to help others to develop.
