People, projects and problem solving are at the heart of who I am and what I do. I'm hugely motivated, confident and enthusiastic with a people-orientated approach to my work.

I have a unique and interesting background consisting briefly of science, teaching, PR, social media, marketing, lead generations, B2B communications, customer service & recruitment. Currently working at The Apprentice Academy in Manchester as a Brand Ambassador and training Apprentices in Business, Digital and Life Skills.

I love trying new things, exploring new places and exciting new challenges. I love a glass of wine and good food with friends and taking in the beauty of the country side on regular hikes. I enjoy going to the gym, doing a bit of yoga and dancing as it keeps my energy levels high and allows me to eat a few more chocolate biscuits here and there.

Working for a start-up allowed me to develop a wide range of business skills, take on a variety of roles and gain experience and confidence in my ability to effectively handle multiple situations.

Perceptiveness and intuitiveness are traits I find are particularly useful in business and training so have worked to hone mine furtherto better utilise them in professional settings. I enjoy learning, generating ideas, rising to challenges and working in teams. I am a happy, hard-working and honest person who is courteous to everyone as I genuinely care about people and treating everyone with respect.

I am confident in my project management and people management skills which I have developed to a high standard. I excel in my ability to communicate information to a wide range of audiences and through different mediums including presentations/pitches, written communications, phone/email/one-on-one and training/teaching. I have further notable skills in research, strategy planning, organisation and statistical data analysis.
