What does your job entail? I work on a huge variety of projects that include design for print, digital and online; taking projects through from concept to creation. I'm also the number one coffee maker in the office!!

What do you like most about your job?  The variety of work we do and the fact that no two days are the same. I enjoy working on exhibition booth graphics and seeing them come to life when the final booth is built on site.

Favourite work memory? I think this would have to be taking part in the design of a large drug-launch booth for J&J. As well as creating all of the booth graphics, we also had to design various digital stations for use across the booth using fun props and interactive elements to engage delegates. The booth was a big success and it was great to hear the positive feedback from the client.

If I wasn't so good at my job, I would be... A primary school teacher — although I do have issues controlling my two boys so I'm not sure how successful I would be!!

Hobbies? I have quite a few 'enforced' hobbies being a mum to two boys! But, when they're not around, I like trying to get out of escape rooms and taking part in horror experiences like ghost tours and zombie mazes! I also like to hike... but only when I have sufficient snacks to power me on!

Fun/surprising fact people might not know? I am such a fan of coffee that I used to take a flask of coffee to school with me!

Favourite quote? "First I drink the coffee then I do the things"
