Looking for her next big adventure she joined Spacehive as their Content Marketing Manager. Here she works the words whether describing the awesome potential of a civic crowdfunded future or outlining the many dazzling features of our grant-making software. She gets to meet the project creators and share their stories as well as working with our partners to ensure they have the material they need to make impact. Outside of work she mentors with The Girls’ Network, solves mysteries and once made jam from the blackberries in her garden of which she is inordinately proud.
