FOUNDER

Biography

After completing my first degree in Business Studies and Management at University of Chester, I jetted off around the world for a year, exploring new sights and sounds, forever instilling a sense of adventure. Upon returning, I came back to earth with a massive bump, but I pick myself up and went to work in the IT department for a local NHS trust.

Over 6 years, I worked up the chain from 1st line support helpdesk to a Project Support Analyst. Whilst working, my eagerness to learn didn’t stop, and I managed to gain my PRINCE 2 practitioner qualification and ITIL foundation qualifications.

In 2016, after a lot of reflection on my career, I made the decision to return back to the University of Chester and study a master’s in Digital Marketing where I also gained my IDM qualification.

Finally I have found my passion in something that fills me with inspiration and creativity each and everyday.
