I am currently doing my Level 6 Diploma in Digital Marketing Management.
Tell us about your average day at Unity
The day starts with our morning stand-up, where we discuss what we have planned for the day, if anyone has any good news and usually a joke or two about someone talking on mute. I work alongside the Account Managers to ensure our clients receive the finest service possible. I do this by looking into efficiencies and supporting the Account Managers wherever possible

Approachable, Exciting and Motivational.
How would you describe your job to a group of five-year-olds?
I am like the jam in the middle of a Victoria sponge cake, without the jam the cake wouldn’t be finished, and no one could have a slice!
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Barcelona. It is the best place to party, eat the best food, sightsee, and sunbathe. I have been there 3 times for friends or family hen do’s, and I’ve still not been able to see all Barcelona has to offer. It has probably got something to do with being a tourist is not top of a hen’s priority!
Describe what you were like at age 10
You would either find me playing in a river, rolling around in mud or skating on my penny board. I was a bit of a tomboy, and you wouldn’t catch me in a dress. It was all about the ¾ length jeans and super cool chain. I think I had a bit of an Avril Lavigne obsession.
What did you want to be growing up?
I wanted to be in the West End! Singing, dancing, and acting. I am well known by friends and family for my dramatics! At least I can keep them entertained.

Confident, Loyal and Hilariously Funny (So I have been told)

Teleportation, every weekend would be new destination!
