Q: How would you describe your responsibilities in under 10 words?

A: Leading marketing, branding and public relations for organisational success.

Q: What makes a typical day in your line of work?

A: My typical day involves a diverse range of responsibilities. I oversee the development and implementation of marketing and communications strategies, manage campaigns and lead a team of three talented individuals, collaborate with cross-functional departments, analyse data to make informed decisions and monitor the results of our efforts. I work closely with my team to plan and execute campaigns, ensure brand consistency across all channels, and communicate with external partners and agencies.

Q: What does your day off look like?

A: Oh, I like this one! On my day off, I prioritise maintaining a healthy work-life balance by engaging in activities that are personally fulfilling and help me recharge. I enjoy spending quality time with friends and my three dogs, as they are an important part of my life. Whether it’s catching up over a meal, watch movies at the cinema, relaxing at the beach, or going for a drink, I value social connections and find it refreshing to spend time with loved ones. These activities allow me to relax, have fun, and create cherished memories.

Q: What do you find most satisfying in your job?

As part of COMO Hotels and Resorts, our brand places a strong emphasis on promoting holistic wellness for our guests. Our dedication to wellness extends beyond just physical aspects, as we believe in nurturing the mind, body and soul to provide a truly rejuvenating experience for our guests.

Q: If you had not taken this career path, what would you have chosen?

A: I would have likely pursued my passion for animals by opening a pet shop and pet hotel. As an animal lover, I have always been drawn to the idea of creating a fun and enjoyable environment for pets and their owners.
