Since leaving Kilkenny College in 2012, I have followed a professional career in International Show Jumping and taken on the responsibility of being my own boss. This has included at 2* level of International competition around the world, buying and selling top show-jumping horses and managing my own team of horses and grooms. All of which takes hard work, determination, leadership, financial skills, organisational skills and logical thinking.

This experience has provided me with a good knowledge of time management, a solid work ethic, an acute eye for detail, strong communication skills, patience with others, the ability to trust, listening skills, flexibility, good judgement and negation skills. It has also given me the ability to keep an open mind, to have a sense of humour, to be supportive and motivate others, to work under extreme pressure.

In October of 2014 I broke my leg whilst competing at an event in Vilamoura, Portugal. This has made me consider a career change and now I hope to learn in a new atmosphere. I am punctual, a fast learner, computer literate, attentive to detail and I work well with others.
