How do you approach problem-solving in your work?
Everything can be simplified if you take the time to dismantle the issue and tackle them one by one.
What are you most challenged by in your role?
Managing expectations - you’ve got to give clients the real down-low sometimes
How do you like to spend your free time? With my phone screen flipped down, a stiff drink on the side and right hand on my gaming mouse! - Gaming, Do. Not. Disturb.
What's your favorite vacation destination and why? Patagonia - because there are loads of different areas I could hike and camp in nature. Also because there’s barely any connection up in the mountains so again - Hiking, Do. Not. Disturb.
What's the most important lesson you've learned in life so far? Leave work, at work - always know when to give yourself a break
What is one tip you would give a person who wants to start working in Public Relations & Communications?
It’s an all-in-one job. Not only do you have to be good in writing, you’ll have to throw yourself in the middle of social situations and thrive, plan actions ahead of time and think in various perspectives whether a said campaign will work or not.
Tell us something about yourself that might surprise us.
I am a horrible texter - all work, no personal discussions makes WhatsApp and Telegram just another work tool.
Where would we find you on a Friday evening?
Everywhere and nowhere really, I never know what my plans are until the day before or on the day itself!
