I consider myself a multi-hyphenate. This means I do various projects at any one time. Since the age of 15 I have always had more than 1 job and have enjoyed being able to switch between roles and tasks. I find it keeps my mind active and my perspective fresh and very often each tasks informs and inspires the other and helps me to create better work.
Originally I trained as an actress and have enjoyed a varied career in theatre, film, radio and commercial.
Alongside this I have worked in various event roles from field management to account management which enabled me to work flexibly between acting jobs.
Currently, I work 4 days a week at finnCap as their Marketing and Events Executive. In this role I support my Head of Marketing to organise and coordinate events and conferences, develop communications through email campaigns and surveys, design and produce marketing collateral from adverts, to magazines, to flyers, build and maintain a wide network, contribute to the proactive lead generation to develop new business opportunities.
My other projects include wedding styling and coordination (Blonde Army) , running a lifestyle blog (Journal of a Blonde) and launching a destination venue platform (tbc).
I am an advocate for entrepreneurs who believe in them selves and their idea. I'm also highly supportive of the multi-hyphenate lifestyle and that having as many strings to your bow is a positive not a negative, as you can transition much easier through changes that happen in the modern workplace.
