Background Information 
Personal profile:

Dr Anne Ward is married to an engineer and has 2 girls and a border terrier. Hobbies are rather tame – in between being a taxi service and childcare specialist, she tries to read, sew, walk the dog and gossip with friends. In a previous life she enjoyed travelling and has been to many parts of the world. The girls are getting older, and she plans to start dingy sailing again and maybe even join a gym!
