WHAT SKILLS DO YOU USE MOST IN YOUR JOB?
  • Communication/ People Skills
  • Resilience
  • Persuasion
  • Empathy
  • Commercial skills
WHAT'S THE MOST INTERESTING THING YOU'VE WORKED ON IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

I think the most interesting thing I’ve worked on so far is the stock offer – working to try and reach a target as part of a massive team was really rewarding for me.

WHAT'S YOUR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND?

Newcastle University: English Language and Linguistics BA Hons (2:1). Masters in Media and Journalism (High distinction).

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO DIGITAL & TECH?

The 21st century world is all about digital and tech - we've all got to move with the times. I think it's important to be clued up on the digital world to succeed in today's day and age.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO GIRLS THINKING ABOUT A CAREER IN DIGITAL AND TECH?

It's the future. Don't be put off or think it's a male lead world anymore - it isn't. Many companies are investing in us as females and how powerful we can be. It's the best thing I've ever done coming into a digital career as it's given me so many new skills which are applicable both in work and home life.
