About me

I am currently looking for an exciting opportunity, to return to the events industry. I recently took a break from my desk-based events job to invest some time in teaching yoga, gaining more on the ground event experience, and broadening my customer service skills (August - Dec 2019). I am a Social Anthropology graduate with a range of experience in events, market research, arts administration and customer service.
