- Website Design and Build
HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE INDUSTRY THAT YOU ARE IN NOW?
I’ve always thrived in creative environments, and knew this was something I wanted to build a career in. I chose to study Interior Design at University and built up a graphic design business on the side. Once I’d finally graduated I realised my passion no longer aligned with the Interior Design industry and working with businesses on their identities and translating that to websites made my heart sing.
Fast forward a couple of years after an internship at a design agency and building up my own portfolio I was invited to interview for a hotel marketing agency, where I spent nearly 5 years soaking up as much knowledge as I could, lusting over the 4* and 5* global hotel brands I was designing for, to eventually start my own business. After maternity leave I bit the bullet and handed in my notice. I started my studio back in December 2018 and have never looked back.
WHAT DRIVES YOU?
Watching all of the businesses and individuals I partner with flourish and achieve and exceed their goals.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN?
Spending time with my husband and nearly 6 year old and working on our renovation project. We’re 18 months into a 5 year project and we’re slowly beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
WHAT DO YOU TO UNWIND & RELAX?
I try and make sure I schedule time into my diary once a month for relaxation. Whether its a day out to a local spa in the Cotswolds or sitting down with a cup of tea and a good book.
FAVOURITE BOOK & WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?
Start With Why by Simon Sinek. A great book for anyone wanting to build a change making brand.
FAVOURITE FOOD & WHY ?
Bara Brith with lashings of butter.
FAVOURITE BAND / SINGER ?
I couldn’t possibly choose, it completely depends on my mood! If I had to make a choice, it would be Lady Gaga. But some days you’ll find me playing 90’s dance, other days I’ll be dancing to Queen and AC/DC, and if you were going to find me at a gig it would be a heavy metal / rock one.
