My passion for helping others – listening to clients’ requirements and helping solve their hiring needs, while helping candidates transition into new careers and following their successes!
Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I spent 6 Summers in the US working as a water ski and wakeboarding instructor on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH.
Can you describe your career journey so far?
Ironically, I studied Computing Technologies for 3 years at Ulster University, before changing direction completely in 2017. I embarked on a new path studying Psychology and I quickly became fascinated with understanding human behaviour and mental processes.
