1. Why was PR your chosen career?

I was first introduced to PR when studying a BTECH in Creative Digital Media at college. This sparked my interest because it enabled me to infuse my writing skills with a big dash of creativity. After choosing this subject for my undergrad degree too, I knew that this would be my ideal career choice. (Also, Eddy from Ab Fab always seemed to have great fun in her PR role!)

2. If you hadn’t chosen a career in PR what would you be doing?

Probably something outdoor related. I think I would be a professional rock climber or boulderer and take part in competitions to earn a living wage – however, I don’t think this would have ever happened. Realistically, I think I would be a dog walker or a vet as I am very animal orientated.

3. What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

“Stop over worrying!” A good piece of advice that I really should listen to.

4. If you won the lottery, how would you spend it?

After giving my family and friends a good ‘chunk’ of the money, I would use the rest to tick off the items on my bucket list. This would include the Day of the Dead in Mexico, a bungee jump, learning another language and running the London Marathon.

5. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

Waitressing for a small coffee shop. I decided to wash the mugs in butter (by accident), which obviously meant there were many unhappy customers returning their oily coffees. Even now, I still can’t make a good cup of tea or coffee!

6. If you were an animal what would you be and why?

It sounds conventional, but I would be my dog. She is spoilt rotten and gets to nap for most of the day. Also, if I was a tropical animal or anything different, I would probably be unlucky enough to be trapped in a zoo or be eaten by predators.

7. If you could, would you live forever and why/why not?

In principle, this sounds amazing! I could do everything I wanted in life and more. In a thousand years’ time I would be the cleverest human alive. However, all my family and friends would not have the same ability and I can imagine the world would be a lonely place.

8. Who are your top three dream dinner party guests?

Stevie Nicks, Alan Sugar and Miley Cyrus.
