About me


I am highly focused, hardworking and an ambitious individual with varied experiences in supporting creative teams in different areas of the media industry. I have worked within companies such as the BBC, Bright Light PR and the Financial Times; with whom I supported the marketing and events team for their exclusive FTSE 100 club. My effective organisational skills and analytical eye have aided me in conducting detailed market research as well as planning events to suit each client. I pride myself on being a quick learner, who can communicate clearly and efficiently with colleagues and clients. My degree in Media Studies has provided me with transferable marketing skills, as I am articulate, empathetic and adaptable.
