FROM PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS TO PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY.
In less than 6 years I’ve progressed from “anxious intern” to a market leading Associate Strategy Director managing some of the most culturally powerful brands in market. I am proud to not only deliver work that excels, but to create and advocate for the voices of our next generation of talent to make the industry more psychologically safe for newcomers.
My idea of success is defied by the ability to overcome churn and challenge industry protocols by reinventing archaic beliefs and practices, delivering my passion of psychological safety to the next generation.
