When & why did you join Get Ahead VA:
I joined the fabulous team at Get Ahead VA in February 2021. I joined because I wanted to feel part of a team, and to collaborate on larger projects.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA:
Before joining the team I ran my own business, as well as working for a firm of accountants as their Marketing Director.
Career highlight to date:
Becoming a Princes Trust supported business was definitely a highlight. As part of this process I had to write a business plan and present it to their business panel.
Whilst running my own business I have been immensely fortunate to present a series of workshops to the Guildford Business Hub, the Athena Network and the Princes Trust. These are all career highlights for me, as I really enjoy helping small businesses and young entrepreneurs succeed online.
Plans for the future:
I love art; so one of my major plans is to travel to Arnhem Land in Australia which is the home of the Aborigines. I have loved their cave paintings, dreamscapes and rock art since I first encountered it as a child. I also want to build my business by collaborating with other agencies like Get Ahead VA!
