I’m a public relations and communications university graduate from Melbourne, Australia, with working experience in events, public relations, marketing, media, as well as reception and administration. Outside of work, I’m addicted to travelling; have a keen interest in fashion; enjoy classical and contemporary dance; love cooking, eating out & a good coffee; and relax by watching a new movie, or reading a good book.
