What is the best part of working at iX.co? 

I enjoy getting to work with a variety of awesome brands from different regions. I also love working for an international company—I joined the team in Zug, Switzerland, and was able to move and work for our office in London, United Kingdom. Working for a company that operates globally is a huge plus because you gain diverse work experience, and get to understand different cultures. On top of that, the people at iX.co make the office — our staff are open, talented, and collaborative.

What was your first job?

My first job out of university was an administrative job.

What piece of career advice would you give to your younger self?

I would encourage everyone to be open-minded and curious. Don't be afraid to ask questions, and don't be scared to push yourself. When you do things outside of the box, rather than do the status quo every day you'll achieve a lot.

Who is your dream dinner guest? 

I’ve been watching the Netflix show “The Crown”, so I would love to ask Queen Elizabeth II her thoughts on the show.  

What digital trend is worth watching?

I think the big thing everyone is watching right now is data. I believe that there's a wealth of data available, and we need to take the next steps to leverage that data. Particularly when it comes to athletic data and customer data.
