A brief description of your career history:

I started out in Retail and this is where I first found my love of sales and I knew it was an area in which I could succeed. With a BA in Communications Studies and MA in Broadcast Production – TV/Radio, I have always found the Media world an exciting and fast pace environment to be a part of. I was looking for a career I could mix my communication skills and ability to develop strong relationships, my love of the Digital Media world along with my sales experience. I fell into the recruitment world just over two years ago starting out as a Resourcer within IT Recruitment. I feel I have hit the nail on the head with Xpand and can really use my passion for all things Digital Media in my role.
