Career highlights

My seven-year journey from PR Coordinator to Senior Manager started in Beirut and flourished in Dubai. Every day I love helping brands tell their stories through sound strategy, internal and external communications, media and influencer relations, events and content development, yet my most rewarding experiences and biggest source of fulfilment stem from mentoring colleagues and students. I’ve represented leading brands across automotive, F&B, entertainment, retail, healthcare, banking and technology industries, including GM, JLR, FWAD, Mattel, Barclays and Google, for whom I have driven award-winning work. “The Google Cook-Off” for example, was recognized with seven regional awards in the past year.

Guiding principles

To continue growing as a professional and a person, by also helping peers become the communicators they aspire to be. As communications professionals, interpersonal skills are essential and this starts internally, before reaching clients and media. Kindness and treating others as we like to be treated go a long way.

Side hustle

I am perfecting my grasp of Spanish, to complement my French, Arabic and English that enabling me to learn many interesting things about different cultures – which I love, having grown up across four countries. I’m also educating myself about mental health and emotional wellness, along with best practices to support.
