Josephine O'Brien

Community Manager UK

Your favourite daily task
Reading and responding to members' comments in the discussions: I create real relationships with members that I try to help as best as I can.

Your motto in life
It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it!

How do you recharge your batteries?
In Ireland, when someone is sick, they are given a "hot 7Up", a heated soda (like Sprite). It's a little weird but it's very popular in Ireland!
