About me


Having recently graduated, I am now eager to build a specialised marketing career path. I currently manage the social media and community strategy for Oscar and Owl, a new bespoke digital babysitting start-up. I have learned a great deal from this role and the scope, freedom and responsibility which accompanies it has given me the invaluable opportunity to experiment whilst honing my own skills. As a result, I am now ready and committed to take on a more focused role in a bigger company where I can learn more, further expand my experiences and put the skills I have already gained to effective use.
