Looking for your lion’s share of creative gigs? Have a look at her 7 Quick Questions then connect with her in Melbourne!

  1. What made you want to work at Vitamin T? And what do you love most about working here? The culture, the environment, the people.... I love everything digital and learning about new technologies. I also wanted to work for a known market leader and a global organisation. I surely got all that!

  2. What do you love about working with creative talent? The great thing about the creative space is that it is forever changing and evolving. By working with creative talent every day, I get to be on the cutting edge of new trends and technologies.

  3. What’s the BEST thing someone can do when looking for a job? I’ve got a lot of “BEST” things:

    • Always present a great folio and a to-the-point resume

    • Be up front and honest about other roles you’ve applied for

    • Only apply for roles you really want

    • Ask as many questions about the role so you have a true understanding of it

  4. In your job, what’s been your favorite moment or biggest joy? Every time I place a talent in a role is my biggest joy. The feeling never gets old (and I like to win.) Happy talent, happy client, happy Vitamin T team. Win-win-win!

  5. What app do you use regularly that provides great user experience? The Commonwealth Bank app.... Sooooo easy to use and fast! It enables you to do so much without going to an ATM or into a bank branch. I love the cardless cash function, very clever!  

  6. What’s your favorite interview question? “What was your thought process behind that design?” I enjoy getting into people’s heads and knowing what they were thinking while they created. I find it really interesting how people get their inspiration for their projects and how that translated into the final piece.

  7. What’s your favorite brand and why? Chanel. Classic. Timeless. Beautiful.
