About me


I'm creative by nature. While my creativity and aptitude for art and makeup is what I'm most passionate about in life, I also thrive in applying it to my professional work; through thinking outside the box, having great attention-to-detail, and accepting failures as a chance to learn and improve. My professional career has been largely dominated by customer service and administrative roles. Not only has this allowed me to work for some progressive, forward-thinking companies like Spotify and Cambridge Assessment, but it's also shown me how to work in a team effectively and achieve KPIs on a routine basis. I'm now looking to branch out into a role where I'll be able to incorporate my creativity and flair on a more regular basis, while also taking on new challenges.
