About me
I started my digital career aged 24 filled with entrepreneurial spirit. Completely self taught, I created my first ecommerce store and ran my own business for 3 years. After closing my store, I decided to make the leap into the digital and technology industry and now, 10 years later, I’m thriving and loving the work I get to do every day! I’m a passionate self starter, conscientious, always learning and also keen to give back. I’m a registered STEM Ambassador, a mentor for women and young people in technology and an official facilitator for #IamRemarkable by Google. I’ve worked in roles and on projects covering digital transformation in SMEs, setting up and optimising ecommerce stores, establishing digital marketing strategies (including SEO & PPC, email marketing & CRM, social media and creating influencer networks) and much more! I’m an all rounder and love learning new things, developing my skills and I’m always attending webinars, seminars and conferences (perhaps that’s how we met and connected?!) to stay ahead and across what the future holds for our industry. You can also find me hosting talks, attending round tables and regularly sharing my thoughts as a subject matter expert. Im a huge advocate for D&I and L&D initiatives In my spare time, I’m a writer and I co-host Poor Lass podcast
