Boss says

"With a willingness to take challenges head on, a great personality and a wicked sense of humour, she's a truly treasured member of the Vista team," says Gemma Mortimore, group events director.

Best project I've worked on

For four years running I helped deliver an exhibition in Cape Town, which was always great fun. It's such a special destination.

Most challenging moment

When I moved to Melbourne I had to start right at the bottom and prove myself again to secure an agency role.

Dream client

An event that allows you to be creative and has a big production budget, such as the MTV Awards.

Alternative career

A graphic designer - I've always enjoyed the design part of my role.

Goals before 40

To still be in a challenging role where I get to experience new things.
