Digital marketer by trade, recently holding the title 'Head of Marketing' and being a first time Exec team member. It's been a tumultuous 18 months after getting towards the top of my game and then realising that it wasn't working out for the kind of life I want to lead. Currently in the process of re-assessing and deciding what the next step looks like. It's exciting, challenging and scary at the same time but I feel relaxed and confident I'm on the right-ish path.

My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

I want to participate in a community that supports and celebrates the achievements of women. Together we are stronger.

What's been the biggest pinch-me moment of your career?

Becoming an Exec team member last year.

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

I talk it out. I am good at processing emotion.

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Don't get stuck blaming the situation, other people etc, you can always do something about it.

Which women inspire you and why?

So many... (will update this bit soon)

What's been the biggest challenge you have faced and how did it help shape who you are today?

Toxic team members who I thought I could positively change/influence. You can't be everything for everyone. Learn how to surround yourself with people who lift you up and bring out the best you. Be that person for others. and if you're not in that environment - change it.

What are you really good at? (We know this one's hard, you guys! As women, we tend to talk about what everyone else is good at. But now it's your turn.)

Sniffing out a story. Sharing joy. Bad-ass at ROI tracking.

What makes you happy?

Hiking in Mountains, the laughter of my special people, a good dance, that moment when you get through a huge wave at the beach just before it smashes into the sand.

What's your definition of success, and how will you know when you've got there? (Go on, aim high!)

At work: Feeling challenged and valued with people I enjoy working alongside me. Personally: Work has not consumed this side and I have time to invest in my friends, family and community.
