Would you like to introduce yourself?
Yes, my name is Victoria Johnson.
What is the background that brings you to France and Associates?
I have worked in various jobs all really that needed a lot of organising of people. When I returned to England from living abroad, I took up a job in an architectural office covering for the secretary/ receptionist. I enjoyed it and although I never thought I would end up working in an office I really enjoyed it. So, when an opportunity arose at France and Associates, I took it with both hands.
Which three words describe you best?
Organised, Thoughtful, Resilient.
Did you have any nicknames growing up?
Erm, many some I didn’t like but my family called me Vickyline or Victoria Plum from the character of a book, I think she was a fairy which fits as I didn’t grow very much 😊
If you were an animal what would you be and why?
Well my husband calls me a Cat as I decide on my terms when I want a hug, but it’s ironic as I don’t feel comfortable around cats.
The office calls me the rottweiler in the office as when I first started, I had to chase up utility companies, we all know what they are like, well within a week I had the mess all sorted. But unfortunately got a new nickname.
I don’t know what animal I would choose myself, as I like many.
Do you have any hobbies?
Yes, I am very artistic and like designing from scrapbooking to drawing. I also love to cook and bake, and mostly if I had the money I would travel as much as I could to all the remote areas, as I love to find out about other cultures.
What strengths do you think you bring to France and Associates?
I already said organisation which my manager Sharon stated straight away when asked lol, erm loyalty and pragmatic very decisive.
If you could invite five famous or noted people to dinner (past or present), who would you choose?
I would know my first choice would be Audrey Hepburn as I have always loved her and think she was a very good person. Jennifer Lawrence as I think she is funny and then I would have to invite Chris Pratt as I think it would make the dinner livelier and fun. Tom Hanks as he is just a childhood favourite and would be very interesting with all his stories, on Graham Norton show he seems to just have this presence, and all seem to enjoy his company. Walt Disney as again I would say he had a very interesting life from small beginnings but never let his wealth change the person he was, so is said, so I think he would be an interesting person to have.
Thank you, for taking the time to let us get to know that the ‘rottweilers’ soft side.
