About me
The Dots is a professional network for people that don't wear suits to work – dubbed ‘The next LinkedIn?' by Forbes. As Head of Partnerships I team up with game-changing brands that work with The Dots to connect with brilliant, diverse talent. Prior to joining the incredible team at The Dots, I have held marketing and consultancy roles at a range of businesses working from kitchen tables to corporate offices - and have been lucky enough to work with some of the most innovative brands in the world. As a politics major, I specialised in gender politics and have since spent my career working on projects that advocate the merits of diversity. A certified NLP practitioner and coach, I offer affordable coaching to those that may otherwise be unable to access support.
