Since I was a small child I have always loved shoes. I grew up in a family where my father hand crafted shoes as a hobby and I learnt a thing or two from him. That’s where my love for shoes began. I had no idea then that I would choose a career in shoes!
Whilst studying for a BA (Hons) Degree in Footwear Design, I worked in 5 different shoe shops and received excellent training in retail and sales. After graduation I spent many years working for Jones Bootmaker and Dr. Martens, within the UK market and internationally. During that time I acquired a diverse skillset from design, product management and buying to sales and retail. My clients now benefit from my extensive specialist skills and knowledge.
I set up my consultancy business in 2015, based near London. Since then, I have been lucky enough to work with lots of exciting shoe brands around the world. I love helping all brands, from start-ups to established businesses.
