What I do

I’m a Marketer that joined Smith Partnership’s Business Development Group in March 2018 as an Assistant. Within the firm I have grown and developed, advancing to Executive. I have a particular focus upon Digital Marketing based projects, working alongside our six offices based across the East Midlands. 

In December 2022 I completed my Level 6 Marketing Managers Apprenticeship, equivalent to a Bachelor's Degree, with a Distinction. After three years of studying hard, this is something that I am very proud of. 

Derbys Finest
I am a committee member of Derbys Finest - Inspiring women in business, a group that aims to support, inspire and encourage the future generations of female leaders. I joined the group as a committee member at the age of 19. 

In June 2021 I was pleased to be have been selected as part of the first ever Mainframe Derby Champions group. Tasked with championing Derby & Derbyshire's creative industries, sharing news and updates within our communities and being the voice of the sector in our region.

'Loves a good panic!'

During my spare time, I am a dance teacher at a local dance school based in Darley Abbey, teaching during the evenings and weekends, as an Associate of the International Dance Teachers Association (AIDTA). I have taught dance since the age of 16, focusing on the traditional disciplines of ballet and tap. Ballet has always been my favourite.
