Before I applied for university, I took the opportunity to travel and work abroad for a year. I explored most of Europe and worked for Ford as a public relations intern in the USA. During my time in Ford’s PR team, I discovered my passion for marketing and I decided to seek it out as a career.
I graduated from university in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in business management and marketing and soon joined a field marketing team for a technology company. The role was exciting, diverse and engaging, however as I pursued further development, I craved more, so I started a Charted Institute of Marketing Certification. The course covered many marketing channels; however, I focused on improving my knowledge and experience within digital marketing as I enjoyed learning the depth of the subject. As a result, I joined Really Simple Systems as the Digital Marketing Specialist.
Outside of work I’m a bit of a nerd, I love science fiction and I run a gaming community that regularly plays board games and online games. I enjoy playing my ukulele at jam sessions in my local pub, it’s great fun, even if I can’t keep up all the time!
I like keeping active by rock climbing and going for hikes and when I have free time (and money) I try to visit somewhere new, be it abroad or somewhere close to home.
