“January 2017. I finally made the decision to choose happiness. This meant walking away from a successful 12-year communications career to finally pursue what I've always loved - DESIGN. Refusing to look back, I placed trust in my unrelenting passion and perseverance to guide my way as I excitedly looked towards the future.”
