Please provide a brief description of your career history?

I studied Psych, so my first job was a Youth Worker…and then naturally I moved into Tech recruitment!  Originally I worked for Drake IT, then Greythorn for years in Australia, the US, Asia and for almost 5 years in London.  Once I returned home I did some time in Telco recruitment for a few privately owned players and then some big multinationals.  I found myself in Digital a couple of years ago and joined Xpand in April 2016.

What makes you ‘now’ in technology?

I love reading about technology and am particularly fascinated by Artificial Intelligence (AI).

What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?

My running!  I love running and most mornings you will find me on my treadmill watching a documentary on my iPad!

What do you see as the next big game changer within the Digital Media and Technology industry?


What is your greatest achievement? (This could be either work or personal)

My family – amazing!

What is the best thing about your role?

The wonderful humans I am blessed to work with every day. They are positive, happy and genuine, and it’s a pleasure to have so many good energies to bounce off and so much variety in my role! 

Who sits next to you in the office?

Right now I’m surrounded by my Digital team who are fabulous, and I think it’s important to regularly move desks, to ensure you get to know everyone in the office, to hear the various styles and enjoy the different stories!

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

A nun…and then a lawyer (go figure)!

What is your favourite quote?

The world is your oyster!
