MEET LAURA

Digital Genius
Tell us about your working career to date and what brought you to Genius?

After college I started out working in management for a large Irish retailer, going on to eventually run their ecommerce operation.  After that, I worked in market research/data analytics for a small company nearer where I lived at the time and then moved into various communications/digital marketing roles in higher education for seven years after that.  I then completed my MSc in Digital Marketing in 2015. After moving house in 2017, my new commute was too long so I decided to try freelance. I met Emma and Shane (virtually) in early 2018 and the rest is history….

 

What do you like most about your role?

That no two days are the same, I never get bored and being constantly challenged. I love working with such a creative team in Genius who are motivated by originality and have a great sense of humour.

 

What do you like to do outside of work?

I took up cycling during lockdown and love it. And that’s about all I manage to do in my free time with three kids at home.

 

Any recommendations on music/podcasts/boxsets/movies/apps that you have downloaded/listened to /watched recently?

Podcasts: Listening to The Frost Tapes at the moment which is really good.

Movies: Tenet, I liked it despite the negative reviews / Series: Bridgerton is trashy fun which is perfect for lockdown.
