About me

I am currently working as the Communications Manager at Onira Organics. Having built up substantial editorial, digital and communications experience, I am now driven by a desire to forge a career at an innovative and exciting company or brand. I am well versed in media law and the key characteristics of great content; I remain calm and composed under pressure, have a keen eye for emerging trends and influencers and can quickly turn my hand to any task put in front of me. I have acted as a Writer, Editor and In-House Communications/PR Manager on a number of projects and campaigns over recent years, and my written and verbal communication skill levels reflect this. I have already accumulated an array of contacts within the world of beauty, fashion, media/creative industries, PR and further afield and I am personable, articulate and driven to succeed. I am confident pitching ideas, writing and creating content to meet a brief, adhering to deadlines and engaging with people in any capacity. My writing, while meeting the House Style of the publication or brand in question, is always accurate, informative and imaginative. I thrive in a creative environment and I am always looking for the next innovative method of story-telling or content sharing. I have a proven track record of formulating interesting and exciting ideas and content and an extensive understanding of both the print and digital landscape; with particularly strong knowledge of platforms and outlets such as Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook and Pinterest; and how to utilise these, and SEO, to reach a target demographic.

  • Onira Organics is a natural, chemical-free, cruelty-free, luxury haircare brand. As Communications Manager, I act as the key spokesperson and representative for the brand to the public, press and stakeholders. As Communications Manager at Onira, I also secure high-profile press coverage for the brand, oversee and manage content for all digital platforms & social media accounts associated with the brand, engage and grow the community, deal with press enquiries, build relationships with influencers, journalists and bloggers and take the in-house lead on all creative projects; including creating and implementing brand strategy. In my role, I work alongside Onira's PR agency (Karla Otto), and international partners (Net-A-Porter, Urban Retreat - Harrods, DryBy London, Le Bon Marché, The Detox Market) to produce and execute campaigns, features, press releases and publicity events for the brand. I have overseen the creation of Onira's blog, which has recently launched, and taken a lead role in the re-development of Onira's main website, alongside writing, editing and copy-writing all of its content. In taking the lead on the creative side of the business, my main focus has been on delivering content and campaigns that engage the community, build brand awareness and, ultimately, drive sales.
