LinkedIn Profile

Originally from Torbay, I moved to London in 2016.

Previously in sales, I was attracted to recruitment so I can meet new people and help them with their careers. There is no better feeling than when you tell someone they got the role!

Here at Orbis I cover change and transformation, mainly working with Project Managers, Scrum Masters and Transformation Leads.  

Outside of work I enjoy cycling and playing rugby.
