I graduated last year with an MSc in Marketing (Distinction), and have also achieved a Diploma in Nursing, BA (Hons) and PhD in Social Anthropology. Further skills training includes Counselling and Life Coaching, and currently Adobe Creative Cloud, Photoshop, InDesign and Premier Pro.
I live in Belfast with my husband Fintan and four fab daughters. After a career in mental health and social research, I recently entered the marketing world and help creative solopreneurs and freelancers build their business and grow their customer community. I will continue to comply with up-to-date guidelines on safe social protocols, updating my advice and services in line with this ‘new normal’, to ensure client and customer safety alongside a return to appropriate enjoyment of your unique services and products.
Box Office and Customer Research Assistant at The Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast (May 2019 – January 2020)
In addition to helping with customers and with events preparation and set up, I carried out an audience research study for The Belfast Book Festival at The Crescent in June 2019. Numerous actionable insights were gained and applied in future planning.
Postgraduate Student at Queen’s University, Belfast (Sept 2018 – December 2019)
While a gruelling and demanding course as a full-time student, I loved the intensive learning involved and gained a lot of knowledge and skills over the year. It was also fantastic to meet so many new people and make new friends. Fellow students were amazing, lecturers fabulous, and the industry experts who guest lectured were an additional source of inspiration.
Sales Co-worker at IKEA Belfast (April 2016 – August 2018)
I worked in the Textiles Department and loved every minute of it. The staff were fabulous and I miss them all to this day! IKEA is such a creative and vibrant environment and I was well and truly bitten by the Marketing bug during my time there. I am also still and forever in love with all things Swedish!
