What’s your career background, in brief?
I studied PR at university, which included a year’s placement in a London-based agency. Following graduation – I joined Whiteoaks as a JAE about a year and a half ago, as my first post-uni, PR role. And now I’m Account Executive.
What’s the most challenging job you’ve ever had?
I worked in a kitchen showroom when I was about 16-17. Selling kitchens to customers, as a then-teenager with an admitted lack of culinary skills, wasn’t the easiest of tasks – but a great lesson in adaptability!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I originally wanted to be a member of the S Club Juniors. Once I realised that dream might not be attainable, it remained in the music realm, and I shifted gears to either a music journalist or reviewer.
What apps, technology items and gadgets can’t you live without?
I’m practically joined at the hip to Spotify and my AirPods. Almost every moment of my day is usually accompanied by some form of a soundtrack.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Put yourself first.
Name one thing about your job that gives you a sense of satisfaction or makes you leave the office smiling…
Getting to see a new piece of client coverage go from pen to paper.
What are you reading, watching or listening to at the moment?
The likelihood is I’m usually watching RuPaul’s Drag Race (it’s feelgood TV and my equivalent of any mainstream sports tournament – the queens are absolute masters at what they do!). And I’m always listening to Beyoncé – her Renaissance album has remained in heavy rotation to me ever since it was released.
Cabin in the mountains or house on the beach?
Cabin in the mountains… as long as there’s Wi-Fi.
