How and why did you choose a career in Client Services?

I studied science (chemistry) at uni which I found fascinating. When I finished uni though, I couldn't find a role in that industry that also meant I could work really collaboratively with lots of different people. I found the digital agency world quite by accident applying for grad schemes but it fitted me perfectly. I like to think it's the perfect combination of art and science in a job.

How would you describe Dare to someone?

A bunch of lovely smart people working together to do the best for our clients.

What work are you most proud of?

Dare's work on the LifeSkills project with Barclays - an initiative that helps people, particularly young people develop the skills they need for work. During lockdown, it's become even more important that young people get the opportunity to develop transferrable skills and our website helps them flourish from virtual work experience to confidence and proactivity exercises. It's not often in an agency that you get to work on such worthy projects and I'm really proud because it's had a positive impact on over 8 million young people in the UK.


If you were a plant, what would you be and why?

Lavender - its got really calming properties and makes people happy!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

"Just keep swimming" A forgetful but kind fish is getting me through lockdown 3!

And what advice would you give to someone looking to break into the industry?

The old advertising world has been judged in the past for its nepotism and it can sometimes feel like an upwards battle to get a job without a personal connection. Whilst this is changing slowly, it's something that I'm passionate about making sure we do right at Dare and so I think teams are more and more receptive to being approached directly by keen new talent. My advice would be to do your research and select the companies that you admire and respect the most and reach out to individual staff members - via the website or LinkedIn to ask for advice or mentorship. Learning from lots of people what their approach is will give a valuable insight into the industry and an edge at interviews.

What's the weirdest habit you've picked up in lockdown?

My husband bought a projector for our living room so we've been doing movie nights with popcorn to re-create some form of going out


What should we all be listening to or watching at the moment?

I'm loving The Queen's Gambit, it's so visually beautiful and idolises the 60's - fun and easy watching.

Show us your self-portrait...

This one's by my daughter! It looks just like me right?


And most importantly - pineapple on pizza, yes or no?
