East Street Arts, Leeds

As a Communicator at East Street Arts, I develop fun, challenging, and personality-driven content.

In addition, my role is to ensure our communication methods are fit for purpose in order to reach our intended audiences.

I have worked in various marketing and communications roles in a variety of industries over the last decade including education, publishing, and tourism before joining East Street Arts in August 2020.

I am originally from Derby but moved to Leeds for university nearly 20 years ago and never left. I live in suburbia with my husband and son where I enjoy building elaborate constructions from Lego and long walks in the Yorkshire countryside.

I am a big music and cinema fan and prior to covid could often be found in the Hyde Park Picture House or watching a band at the Brudenell Social Club.
