Director (DMCG) - Amsterdam

I started in Account handling in London during the heady days of Fallon’s Cadbury’s Ad’s and when ‘The Lynx effect’ had just been thought of. Both my Mum and Grandad had worked at JWT so communications had always been in the family.

I loved the buzz of the industry and when a top recruiter mentioned they had a position working with all the top ad agencies in London like BBH, Ogilvy and AMV BBDO and that they would teach me everything I needed to know - I jumped at the chance!

My first boss was ex- CEO of McCanns and DDB, so it was all about connection and network and really knowing the industry and craft.

After 6 years I went back agency side (eventually!) and headed up business development for FRUKT - part of IPG... the pull of Amsterdam became too great however when my fiancé (now husband) moved here to set up a TV channel and I took the leap. Finding again that recruiting was a great way to stay connected to my global network and the industry I love!

Along the way singing kept my creative side alive and I still write and produce music... Giles Peterson and Sasha have both played my records on Radio 1 and in Ibiza and if you look hard enough you can find me on Spotify!
