About me

I am a creative individual with a highly active imagination and a penchant for the quirky and the quaint. I am obsessed with my parents' Polaroid and enjoy capturing the candid and unexpected on film. I thrive working autonomously but am also a motivated team player and the fast pace of change within the creative industries suits my adaptability and varied ideas. My background in the performing arts has influenced and helped nurture my creativity, drawing on my improvisation skills and strengthening my presentation abilities. Currently interning in the Digital department at The Leith Agency, I manage the social media accounts for various top Scottish brands (including Royal Bank of Scotland, Strathmore, Famous Grouse and Barr drinks, to name a few), provide research insights, and write quantitative and qualitative data analysis reports to account for the successes of digital and social campaigns. One of my most important daily tasks is community management - growing and managing clients’ media channels through on-brand messaging, and in particular, responding to consumer enquiries, as well as managing various ongoing social media campaigns. Part of this management includes ongoing monitoring of results and engagement statistics, reacting to produce campaigns that perform optimally. Much of the research I have completed has pertained to projects for both internal and external communications strategies. I have developed an in-depth knowledge of social media strategies, and how they can be tailored brand-specifically. I have done extensive research on internal communication platforms. I am also tasked with staying on top of the latest digital and social trends that can be incorporated into social content strategies. I also love learning; knowledge is a tangible result of hard work and I’m naturally a curious person. Be it watching QI or reading the latest National Geographic articles, I can never get enough of learning new facts or people’s stories.
