When did you join Christie & Co?
August 2023, a day after my birthday!

 What was your first job?
I was a Team Assistant in Waitrose while I was at university, didn’t enjoy it but it helped pay the bills (or for the drinks)!

 In a couple of sentences, can you tell us a bit about your job at Christie & Co?
I work as Marketing Manager for the Pubs & Restaurants team. I support the guys, helping them to sell properties and win business through emails, print and digital marketing campaigns. 

 What’s your favourite thing about Christie & Co?
It’s a bit cliché, but I think it is the people. The marketing team make coming into the office so enjoyable.

 How has the industry changed since you started at Christie & Co?
In marketing things are constantly changing, and I think AI will have the biggest impact on how we work since the invention of the internet! We need to learn to work with it and quickly!

 Tell us a bit about your life outside work – what are your hobbies?
I try to play as much sport as possible to off-set my favourite hobby, which is eating.

 What’s your hometown? Where do you live now?
I grew up in Bishop’s Stortford, a small town in Hertfordshire between London and Cambridge. About 2 years ago I moved to Welwyn Garden City.

 Where’s the best place you’ve been on holiday?
Sorrento, Italy – I had pizza every single day. Great Holiday. Or Copenhagen – it was freezing (and expensive) but was great otherwise!

 Tell us your favourite joke / What is your favourite movie quote?
I love a terrible pun or dad-joke – I won’t re-tell any to save the collective sigh.

 What is one thing on your bucket list?
To watch the Boxing Day Ashes Test in Australia.

 What’s your social media platform of choice?
Twitter/X, I don’t have IG or FB – I did use TikTok for a bit, but had to delete it as I was on it all the time!
