How would you summarize what you do at Kinexus in one paragraph?
Marketing, digital, content and events manager who occasionally spotlights as the company’s interior decorator (check out our new office). I look after the Kinexus brand, online presence and help the company to communicate and connect with its community better.
What do you like best about working at Kinexus?
I love the opportunity to grow, to take on new challenges and put my ideas forward. It’s great being in a company that values creativity and is constantly looking to do things better.
Why did you choose your profession?
At first I loved that it was fun and creative and always changing. Now I think I love that what I do is largely about providing our community with a great experience.
What words of wisdom would you pass onto your childhood self?
Read more and don’t let your mum throw out your bike!
What was your dream job growing up?
I wanted to be an actor or an interior designer.
What 2 things are you most grateful for?
Of course my amazing family/husband but also the simple little things like my morning filter coffee, cinnamon donuts, cats and a warm shower.
What’s your greatest achievement and how has it shaped you?
One year I organised and ran 4 travelling events that were for hundreds of people. I learnt so much about thinking on your feet, organisation, people skills and taking on the good and bad for the better. It was just part of my job at the time, but I was really proud of how I swam when being thrown in the deep end.
If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?
I would love to be able to do a split leg handstand or know how to do graphic design.
