My journey started just out of university when I was given the opportunity to join an automotive consultancy supporting the Chairman. Becoming an EA wasn't originally the plan - I had just finished my law degree - but I immediately found the role hugely rewarding and loved the fact that no two days were the same.
Since then, I've jumped at every opportunity to expand my knowledge, especially when it comes to tech. I have developed my tech stack and taught myself web design. I’m a firm believer that the right tech empowers EAs to be more efficient, make smarter decisions and free up time to focus on business-critical projects.
I am passionate about employee engagement, team culture and knowledge sharing. A company's success depends on a united team and I work with founders and People teams to bring their vision to reality.

Created in April 2020, The Assistant's Handbook is a blog for EAs, by an EA. I mainly write about tech and what it means to be an assistant today, with the aim of helping fellow assistants power-up their role. I empower assistants to holistically take control of their career with actionable How Tos and tried-and-tested recommendations.
I developed my Notion: Harnessing the Power of Knowledge course in collaboration with The Officials and have hosted and been a guest for in-house Learning Hours, covering time management, GSuite and male allyship.
Knowledge sharing is vital to the success of any team, project or company. Do you have a single source of knowledge or are your docs strewn across Dropbox, Drive, local drives and little-used tools?
