What’s your career background, in brief?
I joined Whiteoaks as a junior account executive back in 2018, fresh out of university. After a brief 18 months away, I re-joined Whiteoaks at the start of this year as account director.
What’s the most challenging job you’ve ever had?
My first job as a sixteen-year-old was working in Wembley Stadium, selling programmes and merch. It was an incredibly busy job that had you on your feet all day and I quickly grasped the meaning of ‘fast paced’, which has served me well in PR. The perks of free concerts and sporting events definitely made up for it, though.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
A footballer, a tennis player, a cricketer – almost any sportsman!
What apps, technology items and gadgets can’t you live without?
The camera app on my phone, closely followed by WhatsApp. Often those two are in tandem as I frequently share photos of my cat to people who did not ask for photos of my cat.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Name one thing about your job that gives you a sense of satisfaction or makes you leave the office smiling…
Being part of a happy team
What are you reading, watching or listening to at the moment?
At the moment I’m watching The Last of Us, which I’m enjoying as I do love a good post- apocalyptic film/series. I’m also watching Shrinking on Apple TV which is fantastic. It’s funny but with heart, and has Harrison Ford, so I would say give that a go if you haven’t yet. I’ve not long finished reading Dave Grohl’s autobiography, so if autobiographies are your thing, add it to your list.
Cabin in the mountains or house on the beach?
Easy – house on the beach.
