I'm proud to have achieved 8 years in profit, thriving throughout lockdown and strategically responding to challenges.

Building Local Communities

Bristol Pop-Up Shop

In 2018 I co-founded the Bristol Pop-Up Shop, following 2 successful years leading the Bristol Etsy Team. I wanted to create opportunities for local creative businesses to reach city centre customers in Bristol over Christmas, and wowzers, we did just that!

System development

I created a full scheme of systems, spreadsheets and guides to support our venture and remote management team.

Supporting small

I developed a financial model, supporting the Shop team and stockists, ensuring everyone is paid for their time.

Drive local economy

We've supported over 250 local businesses over the last 5 years, and our annual project revenue has increased each year.

My Values

Authentic & Honest

I bring honesty and authenticity to my work, paired with my heartfelt drive to help others. We'll build a foundation of trust and grow from there.

Ambitious & Practical

Impressive ideas won't move anywhere without a practical plan. It's important to find the balance of both and continue taking steps forward.

Caring & Collaborative

This is your small business and you know it best, so we'll collaborate on your strategy and plans. I'll guide you with my empathetic and nurturing personality.

Helping you grow

A curious problem solver who loves to connect with people

I love connecting with and understanding people – we’re all so different and we all work in very different ways. I find this work fascinating. My bookshelf is filled with books to help understanding how we think and feel, and how we can grow and develop.

I bring this curiosity to the table, paired with my heartfelt drive to help others. I aim to understand how and why you work like you do, before we get started on your small business plans.

Wonderful clients

Supporting the south west and beyond

Working from Bristol, connecting with small businesses around the UK

Based in South Bristol, I live with my husband and 2 year old son. At the weekends you’ll find us gracing Redcatch Park or Tobacco Factory Market, enjoying all the local street food & coffee.

I’ll occasionally send emails from home between naps, but you’ll usually find me in my Old Market studio space with 3 other lovely creative small businesses.

I enjoy meeting local clients in and around Bristol, but I’m equally happy to meet further afield or online. I’d love to hear from you to see how we could work together.

Positive & nurturing energy

On a mission to make the world a better place

At the heart of all I do, is a drive to make the world a better and brighter place. To me, this means being kind, dedicated and inclusive, connecting with my local communities who have supported and shaped me over the years. 

Kind & approachable

Leading with kindness and dedicated to listening, be assured you'll always find a warm and approachable energy here.

Accessible & inclusive

Please reach out if you need any additional support to access my services. I warmly welcome and action feedback too.

Local communities

In time I plan to give back to my local community, focussing on charities and causes that have kindly supported me in the past.
