About me

As a dedicated and enthusiastic recent graduate from the University of Strathclyde, I have experience working in a demanding hospitality environment and I have also broadened my commercial knowledge about the industry by undertaking a Sales and Marketing Internship. I have the capability to adapt to situations, I am extremely hard working and driven by success. I am very sociable and I enjoy working in teams whilst having the ability to work alone.
