My interest in people led me to study to Psychology and I hold a First Class Honours Masters in Applied Psychology from Trinity College, Dublin. I’ve always been interested in law, regulation and public policy and I hold a Diploma in Law from the Law Society of Ireland. After graduating from my primary degree, I set-up and ran my own tech start-up for two years before returning to college to complete my studies. After working as an intern in the recruitment sector, I joined GLG where I progressed to manage the firm’s Relationship Management / customer support team for Europe, Middle East and Africa. I’m currently providing independent customer operations consultancy services to small / medium sized businesses and looking for new opportunities for growth.
