FIRST CHILDHOOD AMBITION:  To become a vet

Carola’s favourite food is Nutella, and not pasta as some might assume.  A fitness devotee she enjoys high energy fitness classes and her two dogs also keep her on her toes.  Carola relaxes by practicing yoga (she is a qualified yoga teacher), reading and having lunch with her friends.
