Trustee for Women for Women International - UK
She began her career managing the website of a large international development charity and in her current role at digital agency Fat Beehive, works closely with clients to develop robust website, campaign and broader digital strategies.
She has worked with clients including Greenpeace UK, UNESCO, Redress, Tommy's, Health Poverty Action, Tusk, End Violence Against Women and FORWARD.
She has spent time living and working in Zambia, providing business consultancy to small businesses with the aim of helping them maximise their social impact. As part of this work, she helped develop a project to stabilise, and ultimately increase, the income of female fruit vendors from the poorest section of society in Kitwe - a town in the Copperbelt region.
She has an MA (Cantab) in Politics, Psychology, Sociology and International Studies from Downing College, University of Cambridge. She has a particular interest in international politics and international development and submitted her dissertation on food security and biofuels, specifically analysing the impact biofuels are having on the land rights of predominantly female smallholder farmers in rural Tanzania.
