Following 7 successful year in Advertising, mostly spent in McCann Erickson, where she was the youngest ever Account Manager Worldwide and run the 5th and 7th biggest advertising budgets in the country, she moved to London.

What meant to be a small activity soon turned to quite a large operation with millions turnover and almost 50 people working for the company in various roles.
5 years of being a Managing Director in her brother’s company has proven to be the most challenging and rewarding activity in her life.
