Here at Ashleigh we are a constantly busy practice but are lucky enough to have a wonderful team. Everyone looks out for each other and has each other’s back, which makes a good atmosphere. Meet ups outside of work were commonplace when we were allowed! And I’m, sure they will restart once we can. We want everyone to have a good work/life balance.
