About me

 

I have a strong background as an Executive Assistant having supported four CEOs of a large corporation for over a decade, establishing great connections, skills and experience. I took some time out of work last year to fulfill a long held desire to complete my yoga teacher training and since then have undertaken some temporary roles. Most recently I have been supporting the Co-Founder/Chairman of Urban Hotels and the Zetter Group of Hotels and Restaurants. I am a politics graduate looking for a challenging and interesting role.
