As an attorney, she primarily advised luxury brands seeking to enter the Asian market at a time of exponential growth in the sector.

At the legendary fast-fashion giant, she held a series of roles, notably leading the implementation of RFID technology across all UK Zara stores, and went on to lead the Inditex group’s global omni-channel strategy, connecting the online world with the offline for all 8 portfolio brands. To complement her experience with the behemoth fashion group she then jumped on board with a high-growth, direct to consumer apparel brand, Knixwear, as COO.

By assisting such companies in developing their digital and go-to-market strategies, she fuses existing best practices with future technical advancements across the retail sector.
