About me

I am a multi-disciplinary creative with a passion to create engaging stories. Starting out as a designer, I learned the fundamentals and importance of good design, advancing over last 6 years to senior digital art director within the social & content team at Ogilvy, London. More recently I’ve adopted the role of Head of Social for SheSays – aiming to strengthen and shape a better platform to showcase & support more women.
