I'm a results driven B2B PR specialist with a wealth of experience in the built environment, including strategic planning, media relations, marketing communications, social media, digital and crisis communications.
After graduating from University I actually started my career in banking in the City, spending a decade at international institutions such as JPMorgan, Lehman Brothers (not my fault) and Dresdner Kleinwort. Experiencing the best and the worse of the pre-crash city excess taught me a lot about business, the corporate world and late night wine drinking – but my desire to enter marketing and public relations led me to an MA in Business and Marketing in 2009.
After graduating I secured my first PR job at Frontier PR and I’ve been in love with the world of PR ever since.
After a few years I decided to try something different and took an in-house position at Marshalls plc, the UK’s leading manufacturer of hard landscaping, street furniture and water management products. I spent over five years as Group Head of PR, a position which taught me a huge amount about developing communications strategies, B2C and B2B product PR, media relations, social media, internal communications and managing crisis communications.
In early 2017 the time was right for a move back into an agency environment and I returned to Frontier PR where my public relations career began.
With both in-house and agency experience I not only know how to deliver the best results for my clients, but I also understand the pressures they face day-to-day and it helps me to get into the bones of their business. It gives me a real buzz to exceed their expectations.
Outside of work I love spending time with my husband, son and dog Gruff. I play for a netball team and I love music and going to gigs when time allows.
