About me

I enjoy keeping busy and learning which is why I chose to continue to work while studying for a masters. I am set to graduate in April 2016, with just my dissertation to go which is focusing on social media, consumer behaviour and luxury branding. I enjoy keeping fit and last Summer co founded an events company called The Privee Project in order for it to act as a marketing platform to connect health enthusiasts & bloggers with fitness brands in central London. Our last event raised over £2,000 purely through a social media strategy over 3 weeks for people that suffer with ME/CFS. In my spare time I write content for a few online health and fitness magazines. I'm comfortable with public speaking and have been a guest speaking at London Met University, speaking to master students about PR and Marketing in events.

Work history


PR & Marketing Executive


May 2013
  • My job at Chillisauce consists of creating, implementing and executing marketing campaigns that align with the larger business objectives. I manage a team of two others, in which I have great fun with working as part of a team, and learning from one another. On a weekly basis I will meet with journalists from across both men and women's lifestyle, as well as national news, TV and Radio. I get a real kick out of securing coverage and executing a challenge. From recruiting the first ever team GB to compete in the Naked Sledding World Championships in 2014 in Germany to copywriting for fitness magazines and websites, I have a real drive to keep busy and learn.
