"I play an important role within our office experience and culture."

My role, as Lab Assistant, consists of working at Foolproof’s London Office with the Front of House team and onsite, with one of our clients in the research labs we run on their behalf.

To ensure the labs are running smoothly and ready for use, I manage the lab calendar, configure the appropriate lab set up, assist consultants, conduct test runs and welcome participants. At the London Office, my duties are very similar. That said, I have general ad-hoc duties to fulfil such as the organisation of team travel, accommodation and events.

Prior to Foolproof, I was bouncing in between Customer Service roles and PR internships. I also worked a Fashion/Design PR internship at MAY Concepts based in the creative hub of Shoreditch.

I’ve had FOH roles with LEON, ASOS and Tate Modern where I gained a fantastic network with creative people and was inspired to start an online magazine. After graduating in Media and Communications, I setup a collective comprising an online magazine and natural moisturisers to promote culture, identity and self care. 

Two things that bring me peace are hair braiding and photography, so I choose to take part in these whenever I can.
