About me

Just your typical Millennial London Girl. Well, except the whole neurodiverse, opinionated, bisexual, feminist-Disney-Princess thing. Current Senior Partnerships Executive at NABS, the advertising industry charity. I started my career in legal marketing and after an all too brief stint in CSR moved to the charity sector, joining NABS in 2016 to support the fundraising and community partnerships team. I spend my days talking to organisations around Adland about how NABS can help their people be their happiest, healthiest selves and fundraising to support NABS’s services, as well as running the highly successful Ambassador Programme and annual Fast Forward training course. I first spoke publicly about my Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD and mental health struggles at the first DiverseMinds conference in March 2018. Since then, I've shared my story at organisations including adam&eveDDB, Kinetic and AKQA. I truly believe storytelling has the power to educate, inspire and change minds, and have set up ‘Lunch & Learn’ series at NABS to do just that! A born and bred London girl, my free time is spent exploring the city’s ever changing multitudes, seeking out it’s weirdest cabaret and continuing my quest for it's best salted caramel brownie.
