Tell us about your working career to date and what brought you to Genius?
After University, I worked in various marketing roles. My career really kicked off when I landed a marketing role at Apple. It was the most exciting time of my life. 4 years there as Marketing Manager, followed by 8 years at Microsoft. Two children gave me a small career break, but I returned full time to Samsung in 2017 in a Senior Marketing role. I decided to go agency side just before lockdown 2020 and it was the best decision I have made. I am much better suited to this environment now. Genius came along and I absolutely love it!
What do you like most about your role?
I have a varied role. I support clients with marketing and the marketing for Genius itself. I feel blessed to have a great boss like Emma. She is understanding and flexible. I am extremely passionate about Genius and will work my socks off to help continue the company to be successful. The other bonus is having a superbly talented team by your side.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Well, I am a mum to two amazing daughters and two lazy cats. I love walking and I will do a Hiit or Yoga session when I have the time. I like to read. I love the authors Peter James, Lynda La Plante and Matt Haig. I am also at the start of a course in Journalism, as I enjoy writing. So busy, busy.
Any recommendations on music/podcasts/boxsets/movies/apps that you have downloaded/listened to /watched recently?
Music – I listened to Radio 2 most days. I love anything from Kings of Leon to George Michael to Taylor Swift to 80’s. I’m a real mix bag. Nothing better than a boogie round the kitchen.
I have just started Bridgeton, but I do like watching anything crime solving related (although it scares me a bit). So, I recommend Mindhunter, The Ripper, The Pembrokeshire Murders for starters. I also recently watched Official Secrets with Keira Knightly in – that is worth a watch.
