When it comes to mental health, I’ve always considered myself to be ‘unscathed’. By that I mean that I don’t really struggle with my mental health - bar the odd bit of situational anxiety or severe deadline pressure.

What brought you to employer branding?
I'm big on engagement. There's always a place for advertising, but engagement, content and long tail approaches are my favourite. Helping to bring employer brands and what organisations have to offer through storytelling, with a foundation of insight is where I get my buzz.
Tell us about a project that you feel proud of.
I've worked with Asda for around a year - it's been tough going through the pandemic, but it's right up my street. It's always on, with a great mix of reactive and proactive campaigns right across the business. Something I've really been able to get my teeth into.
If you had to sum Chatter up in three words what would they be?
Fast. Intense. Fun.
When you’re not working, what gets you out of bed on a weekend?
I love the gym and I'm currently focused on getting 'fit' for the new basketball season - it's been 15 years since I dunked, but I want to do it again. Unfortunately, my other love is food, so the two don't always go hand in hand. And in a normal world, I'm known for always needing to have a holiday booked. Whether it's a city break, a week by the pool or an adventure somewhere a long way away, I just hate the thought of leaving places unseen.

More from the team
I joined Chatter as an Account Administrator in November 2018 straight from a Theatre and Performance degree at the University of Leeds.
If you look at any of our social feeds, you'd think that I'm at Chatter solely to drink milky tea but in actual fact I'm an Account Director.
