As a University of Sheffield English Literature Graduate, I have a creative edge and a natural way with words, creating, slick, ‘sexy’ and attention-grabbing content which we communicate to the public. Running the day-to-day operations at DNPR, I am motivated by gaining our amazing clients the profile they deserve. It’s not uncommon to see me ‘fist-pump’ the air whenever we achieve a ‘PR-win’ for our clients!
