What’s your career background, in brief?
Life-long marketing / communications bod. Focused on PR for over 10 years before moving into social media, which I’ve now been doing for more than 15 years. And now I am Head of Social here at Whiteoaks.
What’s the most challenging job you’ve ever had? (For example, waitressing, selling items in a summer fair, PR account manager)
Selling ad space in a magazine. On the plus side, the other part of the business was executive car hire, so I got to drive a Ferrari around London when I was 21 years old 😊
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Professional tennis player. I nearly got there, but a back injury put a halt to everything.
What apps, technology items and gadgets can’t you live without?
My phone (obviously), and my Garmin golf watch.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Live to work don’t work to live.
Name one thing about your job that gives you a sense of satisfaction or makes you leave the office smiling…
You can’t beat positive client feedback for a job well done.
What are you reading, watching or listening to at the moment?
Just finished the TV series, Gold, which was excellent. Loving Andor and The Mandalorian (which I watch with two of my daughters who are avid Star Wars fans 😊). And I’m a bit of a Rick Shiels YouTube fan.
Cabin in the mountains or house on the beach?
Definitely torn on this one… I’d have to go with house on the beach though.
