Co-Founder + Strategy Director

With over 15 years’ experience in the design industry she loves the buzz of agency life and sees a challenge in everything.

Having worked with clients from across the globe, including V&A, New York Public Library and Natural History Museum, last year she co-founded the agency Altogether, it’s going from strength to strength with clients such as Newcastle United Football Club and National Trust. Prior to co-founding Altogether she was Creative Director at Sumo, an award winning North East agency. 

Turning challenging problems into compelling communications is a nonstop passion, and with an agency to run, switching off may not be her strong point, but her team have long since accepted that. Sharing her expertise as a board trustee at North East heritage centre Old Low Light and as a steering committee member at Design Event North East also keeps her out of trouble.

Down time usually spent averagely but keenly running along the River Tyne.
