Joanna Merrison

Personal Assistant to the Principal

I moved to Doha in March 2015, an expat ‘trailing spouse’, after getting married at Christmas 2014.

I joined Compass – Madinat Khalifa in May 2015 as I soon realized there are only so many Malls you can spend time in!!

I have over 15 years’ experience working as Personal and Executive Assistant at Board level in the UK.

Predominantly in the Public Sector. I am an avid watcher/participant in any type of quiz and have often been on the winning team

I once took on Ann Robinson and won – as I was not the Weakest Link – in fact I won.  Hence I am always in demand for Quiz Teams and am banned from my local Quiz at home in the UK

My favourite quote is:  ‘If life hands you lemons – make lemonade’
I would love to learn a new skill….
