‘Dynamite comes in small packages’ definitely stands true for me. Not even 5 foot, but bursting with energy, passion and drive. I’m motivated and have the willingness and determination to succeed at whatever I put my mind to.
From a tiny tot I’ve always had a mind of my own and known that I want to be great. When I was three my biggest dream was to marry a Prince and be rich and famous. The dream has changed somewhat over the years but I still have the attitude.
I graduated with distinction from AAA School of advertising as well as a number of awards, of which I am most proud. Although it didn’t come without a lot of hard work. I am not scared of hard work.
I have a love and passion for great brands and extraordinary advertising. A true Generation Y baby. I love social media and all things digital. I am immersed in all forms of new age marketing and find it an invaluable tool; I can’t imagine life without the web.
I’ve discovered a love for cooking, food and wine and spend lots of time reading up on new recipes and articles about the different properties of various fruits and vegetables. I’m a veg –aholic, but by no means am a vegetarian. I’m addicted to yoghurt and butternut. Not at the same time though.
During the busy week Pilates keep me sane and gym keeps me fit. I love to dance.
I love red wine and am an ambassador for Kleine Zalze Wine Estate where I blog about their wine, and various other topics on their blog For the Love of Wine.
Give me something pretty, pink and shiny if you want to cheer me up and a sale always puts me in a good mood. I love a bargain, but am very careful with how I spend my money and always keep some tucked away for a rainy day.
Cappuccino’s and chocolate are another addiction.
I love a good book – I’ve just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and have just started the sequel. Movies are another love of mine – old or new. Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Casablanca, Pretty Woman and Notting Hill are among my favourites. I adore the series FRIENDS and have watched all the episodes about a hundred times and can recite many of the lines by heart.
I’m an old soul and love things from the past. Old photo’s, old movies, even old fashions. I love my friends and our dinner club. I love my boyfriend and going away for weekends. I love my mom’s home cooked meals. I love my poodles and I love speaking French – well trying to!
I’m confident and well spoken and generally get on with those around me. Throughout my career so far I’ve built strong relationships with the people I work with as well as my clients and Im certain they feel I am someone they can depend and rely on.
I live by the mantra ‘”Find a job that you like and you will never have to work another day in your life“.
I have great respect and admiration for the industry of marketing and advertising and look forward to the many more years I get to spend growing and learning from it.
And that’s me. In a nutshell.
