What’s your career background, in brief?
I joined Whiteoaks International as a Junior Account Exec after finishing my degree in Management and Marketing at the University of Exeter, after doing work experience here the summer before and thoroughly enjoying it.
What’s the most challenging job you’ve ever had?
I got my first job at 14 in a coffee shop and whilst I loved it at the time, it was full of lots of busy weekend shifts constantly smelling customers bacon sandwiches and toasties and not being able to eat them!
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Ten year old me wanted to be an astronaut or a magician’s assistant… how things have changed.
What apps, technology items and gadgets can’t you live without?
I first downloaded the app TikTok during the pandemic, but I am still guilty of spending far too much time on it, usually watching satisfying cleaning videos or compilations of other people’s dogs.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Think positively and positive things will happen.
Name one thing about your job that gives you a sense of satisfaction or makes you leave the office smiling…
Working within a team of great people in a lovely office environment and importantly also the delivery of croissants on a Monday.
What are you reading, watching or listening to at the moment?
I have recently just re-read one of my favourite books called ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’ by Liane Moriarty, which is about a wellness retreat with some very unorthodox methods and is full of lots of twists and turns, if you haven’t read it, you definitely should.
