Work Experience

I have amassed over 15 years’ experience working in design practises while also completing freelance work. I have worked for a diverse range of clients in Ireland, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Africa including global and high end luxury brands, international NGOs, national health campaigns, tourism organisations, health and wellness companies, sports sector and small local emerging businesses.

 

I have worked on the creative, client facing and administration sides of the design business. I managed a successful design studio for two years. I have been the key point of contact on client accounts and managed large projects. I understand business objectives and always put myself in the shoes of the customer to ensure I deliver the best for my clients whatever their budget.

What else I get up to…
My life is balanced between being creative and my outdoor adventures. I’m a hiker, biker, fresh air liker. I love my skis, I adore my yoga mat and I can guarantee that I will look at any big hill with a huge smile on my face.

 

Volunteer Work

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2017. It changed my world as I knew it and has redefined my outlook on life. I am passionate about using my work and life skills to enhance the lives of others. I am now a PPI (Patient & Public Involvement) representative for the Irish Cancer Society and Breakthrough Cancer Research and a council member of the Irish Association for Cancer Research.
