About me

I am a Senior Account Executive in Advertising working across Jeep, Alfa Romeo and previously also for Novotel & Mercure Hotels. My experience has focused on social; both paid and organic, digital display, eCRM and website. With experience in OOH and TVC. During my time in the industry I have also gained a Distinction in the 2018 IPA Certificate that put me in the top 11.1% of the 1,113 participants. The course discussed the whole creative process, industry practices and key concepts. I run a small personal blog in my downtime that allows me to explore my writing and photography. Head to the link below to see my site. When I’m not tinkering on my site you’ll find me running around Central London and foolishly signing up for Half Marathons. While enabled by my boyfriend’s touring schedule you’ll also catch me travelling to wherever I can, highlights so far have been Tokyo, Thailand, Atlanta and LA.
