MEet Amy Bruchez – Compliance Manager
My main hobby is baking. I love the process of taking some simple ingredients and turning them into something decadent and delicious – it’s a science and an art! And such a great creative outlet. Not to mention the fact that it keeps me in my friends and family’s good books when I share some treats with them! Last year I did my first ever commissioned cake – it was a mermaid themed lemon sponge, and it’s still the highlight of my baking journey so far.
I’m a parent too, to a beautiful 6 year old boy. He’s my little best friend and has definitely made lockdown more entertaining! He’s also the chief taste tester and spoon licker for all my bakes (especially if there’s chocolate involved!).
I think I completed Netflix during lockdown (oops), my top shows this year have been Schitt’s Creek, Dead to Me, Sex Education and Rupaul’s Drag Race UK Season 2. And I still can’t stop listening to the three albums Taylor Swift has gifted us over the last 12 months.
Although I am involved in lots of projects for TPA, my personal outside-of-work project is all about sustainability, particularly in the fashion industry. I have been on a mission for over a year to make sustainable changes to the way I consume fashion, which means I haven’t purchased a new item of clothing in over 12 months!
I’m also on a journey to be more environmentally friendly with my diet, and I’m hoping to be full pescatarian by the end of the year.
