With a background in the Events and Marketing industries, I was looking for a new challenge post Covid. I jumped at the chance to join the recruitment team here at Pentasia, where I can take my skills and expertise to new levels.
I specialise in recruiting marketing professionals into the iGaming industry and have really enjoyed the challenges of what is a dynamic and fast paced environment.
I love speaking to new people and finding roles which are perfect for them is something I cannot get enough of! I am an avid football fan and follow AFC Wimbledon home and away!
