Tell us a bit about your career history…
Prior to joining the Framework team, I worked at a fellow Nottingham design company that specialises in Packaging Design. I worked with them for 7 and a half years as a Creative Account Manager.
Share a memorable career highlight
A highlight of my career was definitely having the opportunity to move to London for 6 months. I had been asked to move to set up a brand new account for a big retailer, so this was a really fun time and a great experience.
What are you most proud of achieving?
One thing I’m especially proud of is creating a brand called GRL PWR. I did this with my best friend and we sold merchandise to raise money and boost awareness of Ovarian Cancer. This has always been a charity that is close to my heart so it was brilliant to be able to do this! We managed to raise thousands of pounds for the charity and got support in promoting our t-shirts from celebrities such as Sophia Bush and Vicky McClure.
Where would you like your career to go in the future?
In the future, I would like to take on a more senior role and have the opportunity to manage my own team.
I also have a huge interest in interior design, in fact, I’m currently working on renovating my house! So I would definitely love the opportunity to work on any interior design accounts that we win in the future! Maybe my Framework chum Amanda could hook me up with some contacts…. Hint hint!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I really enjoy the gym and go around 3 times a week, it’s a great way for me to switch off and de-stress. I once won a competition at my gym for doing the quickest ‘no hand’ burpee! I currently have no plans to organise an office burpee competition, but they all live in fear!
I have a one year old Basset Hound called Bertie who requires lots of belly rubs! So we always head out on lots of fun walks together.
I also enjoy travelling to new countries and cities, and I’m a big fan of visiting new restaurants and maybe sampling the red wine!
