Her own journey to find purposeful work has taken her from Clinical Psychology to Existentialism, from non-profits to startups and from London to Barcelona, San Francisco and Berlin. By day she works as a marketing consultant, helping startups unearth the purpose at the heart of their business. She runs discussion events on meaningful work and believes in making space to ask the difficult questions, especially when answers are hard to find.
