About me

In addition to my scientific experience as a biology student at university, my over 5 years of involvement in the RDA, an organisation that works to bring horse riding to disabled individuals as part of their emotional and physical therapy, has improved my ability to manage my time and function effectively in a multi-disciplinary team under stressful conditions.

Specifically, as media manager and data protection officer of this organisation I curate and manage multiple social accounts for the group and apply the relevant areas of the law to ensure we are meeting all data protection guidelines. Through these roles I have developed my skills in digital marketing and my knowledge of how this functions alongside the data protection act of 2018. 

To further develop my skills in this field I founded Lapillus media management which is a social community that offers free social media management to voluntary organisations and small businesses. 

As I am interested in pursuing a career in science communication I would greatly value the opportunity to work with volunteer organisations to develop their media presence and feel that I could add value by combining my experience with writing developed through my degree with my digital marketing experience.

What am I looking for

I am interested in roles surrounding social media and media management.
