Prior to arriving at The Union, my previous roles included media strategist, German teacher, crisis line counsellor and journalist. My advertising career started in media strategy at a big London agency after a brief stint in publishing, which consisted mainly of rescuing cheques from the bin! I’d fallen in love with advertising, began reading Campaign obsessively and doorstepped agencies until I got a gig. I have worked in London and Australia with creative, media and digital agencies, learning a lot on the way. I develop advertising, digital and social media strategies for a range of public and private sector clients. In Australia, my clients included Heinz, Cadbury and General Motors. I arrived at The Union in 2012 and never left. (Well OK, once, but I missed it madly and am chuffed to be back home with the wonderful people at Union House.) Here I scope, plan and conduct research and insight generation projects for clients such as The Scottish Government, Sterling Furniture and ScotRail. Finding out what makes people tick and building brands are my work passions.  I am a member of the IPA’s Talent Team and enjoy helping to inspire industry newcomers. I’m a Marketing Society of Scotland judge and finalist for IPA’s Women of Tomorrow 2016. A lifelong love of learning means I often have my nose in a book or blog and have degrees from both Cambridge and Charles Sturt universities in Modern Languages, Social & Political Sciences and Psychology. I am also devoted to the consumption and creation of great cake!
