I joined SMILE Fundraising in 2017. I didn’t expect to find a job that allowed me the freedom to develop and grow. I'm unbelievably proud of the work we’ve managed to achieve to date. I have had the opportunity to represent and work with many amazing causes, and I can’t wait to see who I get to work with next! I now work closely with our charity partners, manage our private site booking team, and manage external client relations to organise the best possible fundraising opportunities for the day-to-day operations of the team.

My main hobby outside of work is music! I love to DJ, go to concerts with my friends, and go on holidays to soak up the sunshine!

Marie Curie, because my grandma was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer very suddenly. Marie Curie gave her the best treatment and care we could have asked for.
