About me
If I had to describe myself in 3 words, they would be Lover, Teacher & Creator. Lover. I am passionate about wellbeing, growth, and self-awareness. My ongoing journey into self-discovery inspires me every day and has formed a huge chunk of my life and work today. Naturally, I find myself drawn to organisations such as My Runway Group and Inside Out UK, which have brought me a lot of joy in serving others. Teacher. My career has led me through coaching and mentoring, learning support and even teaching dance. Guided by my mantra ‘no child should be a victim of their circumstance’, I have found that providing opportunities, positive leadership and enabling others to be the best versions of themselves brings me a great deal of fulfilment, be it in the classroom, the studio or the office. Currently, I am very proud to manage and lead a busy team in a highly technical and deadline-stricken environment. Here, knowing my people allows me to get the very best out of my team even when the pressure is on (which it very often is!). Creator. You can find me with a camera in one hand and pencil or pen in the other, music on full blast and engrossed in all things creative! I see the world in concepts, especially in movement when it comes to music. I love creating a narrative in mediums like photography where I focus on natural-light portraiture and product photography. Writing has always come naturally to me, and I enjoy creating content that connects with the heart. Going forward, I'm committing my efforts to aligning my passions and career more closely together. I'm looking for new opportunities and networks which allow me to do this.
