Tell us about your career journey
I’m the Director of Rosewell, a modern sex care and intimacy brand. I founded the business with two partners in late-2019 with ambitious goals to make sex care products accessible, ungendered and simple. My background is in finance and property marketing, and I study Law, so a huge industry shift! I wanted to contribute to the progression of an industry that has hardly moved over the past couple of decades. I think an outside perspective has helped with that and been one of the most important elements of building Rosewell.
What are you most proud of in your career?
I’m proud of starting an entirely new one with rosewell. A consumer brand is dynamic, always changing with your community, and I’m proud of how quickly I’ve adapted and learnt. On a personal level, I’ve always been proud of the beautiful relationships I’ve built with incredible, caring, compassionate people.
Biggest challenge in your career?
Prior to rosewell, I worked in male-dominated industries, often one of the few women in the room. At times, it wasn’t just difficult to assert myself, but get other young women in the room. I’ve made it a promise to myself that with every hire we make, rosewell will focus on creating safe, equitable environments. It’s also been a challenge to learn balance - for Rosewell’s first year, I held two jobs, freelanced, studied and was working on the brand. I have a new-found appreciation for the value of time, exercise and sleep.
