  • About me

  • I recruit in the manufacturing and engineering sector, working with SME’s and major OEM’s predominantly within the aerospace & defence, nuclear, automotive and marine industries.

    I grew up in Fareham and now live in Waterlooville with my fiancé and my 3 cats (I am officially a crazy cat lady). I studied English Language and Literature at the University of Leicester and have been working in recruitment since 2013.

    In my spare time, you'll either find me at Crossfit / the gym, baking, reading, or watching a good TV series on Netflix. I also love travelling and going on holiday, and I've been to 14 countries.

    A few fun facts about me:
    I have raised a total of £5,000 for Childreach International, completing two challenge events for the charity. At 19 I climbed to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and spent 3 weeks in Africa exploring Tanzania, going on safari in Kenya and relaxing on Zanzibar Island. I later, at 21, travelled to China to walk the Great Wall of China, exploring hidden parts of the wall and climbing Heavens Ladder.
    Earlier this year (2019) I completed my first Tough Mudder just outside London. This was scarier and included more electrocution than first expected but was great fun!
