I am an Associate and the Marketing Manager at Birkett Long. My responsibilities at Birkett Long include marketing strategy, with my day-to-day role including management of the firm’s website, events and seminars strategy, advertising, copy writing and coordinating public relations in liaison with the firm’s PR agency.
A large part of my role is overseeing the workloads and development of the Marketing Executive, Marketing Assistant and Marketing Apprentice. I am an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing and I have completed the Professional Diploma in Marketing.
I sit on the Parochial Church Council of a church in Halstead, and in 2015 also became a Trustee of registered charity the Friends of St Andrew’s Church, Halstead, having assisted with fundraising event ideas and planning over the last couple of years. In 2016 I was invited to become a Board member at the Mercury Theatre, Colchester.
Much of my spare time is taken up by music (and shoes!). I am the co-founder and musical director of Exaltation! Choir. The choir was founded in 2008 and performs at weddings, charity concerts and many other events. At St Andrew’s Church, I coordinate the worship band at our monthly, informal ‘Ignite’ services. Each band member takes turns in leading worship, as well as playing instruments - I am a Grade 8 flautist and, as well as singing, am occasionally found enthusiastically bashing a cajón slightly out of time.
