I am currently working as a Corporate Communications Manager for the Royal Bank of Canada, based in our New York office covering the U.S. business.

I moved to New York with the company in September last year. In my role I develop and execute on a communications strategy for the firm’s global markets business, with responsibility for managing the internal and external communications for our fixed income, equities and research teams. I am a strategic advisor and partner to the business, supporting the priorities and goals of the firm whilst managing relationships with key journalists and producers working for international and national financial publications and networks.

I joined RBC in London in 2017, starting as a Communications Advisor covering predominantly internal communications. I joined RBC’s RFuture employee network for young employees, leading on a range of major initiatives to improve networking and development opportunities,  and managed to become co-Chair of the group in 2018. In the same year I also became one of the youngest, most junior people to ever sit on the UK Diversity Committee.

Since 2017 I have also volunteered for the Samaritans, a suicide crisis helpline, as a listening volunteer logging over 200 hours of calls, and assisting with training and mentoring of other Samaritans. I have also worked with the charity Bloody Good Period to arrange donation events, starting out with a small event with just 10 people in my flat, to the following year hosting an event at a bar in London with over 80 guests to raise funds and awareness, and organize donations of much-needed women’s menstrual health products.

In 2020, I won RBC’s Global Citizen Award for services to the community and donated my prize fund to the Bloody Good Period.

Prior to joining RBC and the banking industry, I worked in Healthcare, in a communications role for the Global HealthCare company, Abbott.

I studied Spanish and International Media Communications at the University of Nottingham, and I also studied at Valencia university for one year. I worked as a journalist in Malaga, Spain, for the Spanish newspaper Diario Sur. I started out translating articles, but ended up reporting on and writing my own articles – both in Spanish and English for the English version of the paper – Sur in English.
