"Start somewhere."

I have worked in the events industry since 2010 as an Events Manager and have been with Business Chicks since 2014. I am at my most happy when I am with my friends and family sharing a bottle of red and a delicious meal, at the beach with a good book, or scrolling through interior design pages on Insta while snuggled up to my partner on the couch. I love leading the Events team here at Business Chicks and thrive in this fast paced and inspirational organisation.

Friendship. Laughter. Wine

My work life blend

Why are you a Business Chicks member?

Because I'm a woman! I feel that all women should be a part of this movement and be involved in supporting the important work Business Chicks does.

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

Working with the hilarious and inspiring Jamie Oliver in 2015 with Business Chicks

How do you deal with setbacks, failures and fear?

I talk myself right back into it. I can do this. It's not life and death, and someone before me has come up against this and conquered it.

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

Everybody's 'success' is different. Never compare yourself.

Which women inspire you and why?

My mother. My grandmother. My sister. My friend. Every woman that has come before me and who has worked, suffered, succeeded in their lives. Life isn't easy.

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

Being faced with illness in the family, when its someone closest to you, has been my biggest challenge. It teaches you to appreciate what you have and not take for granted every moment you have with loved ones.

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.)

I have a special interest and love for interiors. I get great pleasure from being creative and designing something from scratch. And I would like to say I am good at it.

What makes you happy?

Friends, family, love, wine.

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

Owning my own home. Having a family. Reaching my career goal.
