In the past 8 years I've lived in Dubai as a creative at the award-winning Ogilvy, freelanced in London, Paris & Amsterdam for ad agencies and start ups and worked continuously on many side projects. However you'll now find me sat in the office of the amazing online female publication, Refinery29 as their Creative Lead on Branded Content.

In 2017 I was the first ever president of SheSays London, doubled their events and continued to grow their online & offline community during my stint. In 2015 I also co-launched their mentoring arm, Who's Your Momma, and to date the scheme has paired over 200 women with mentors. 

Aside from supporting women in the industry I also launched The Freelance Circle last year. The FC is a website that gives freelancers a voice and invites them to anonymously review places (5 star ratings) they've freelanced with the aim to improve and add a level of transparency to the gig economy for both freelancers & agencies. 

In 2017 alone I was honoured to be listed in: The Drum's '50 under 30 making waves in the industry', Campaigns Mag's Future Female Leaders and The Hospital Club 100 as well as a judge for a number of creative awards in Europe & New York.
