CREATIVE & SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTOR
Growing up in my parent’s advertising agency and my grandfather’s printworks & bookbinders instilled in me a love of font, design, layout, adverts & photography that permeates my work to this day.
I have designed websites for 16 years, written & edited successful blogs on various platforms since 1999 and used social media to market my own & other people’s businesses since Facebook, Twitter & Instagram were launched. I have had my own businesses for over a decade and run Etsy shops since the site opened in 2005.
I have an MA(Hons) in Psychology, postgraduate certificates in Entrepreneurship & Law, grew up surrounded by Family businesses, have lectured at University, worked in small business advice, mentored startups & students, collaborated with many big names and written entrepreneurial policy documents for local government.
I am also a published author.
My son and I live in Knutsford with our small black cat, in a little house full of books, photographs and art, round the corner from my family and surrounded by friends and a tight knit community.

MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
Living in Knutsford with my family, I am able to use my twenty years’ experience in Marketing and Communications to help an individual starting a business from scratch to be successful from the start.
A BSc degree from UMIST in International Management with French 2:1 Hons, a diploma from Lyon University and CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing) Diploma status means that I have a solid knowledge of all business requirements and am able to support your requirements. Having worked for Global companies in Marketing, Account Management and Sales including BT Global, Pilkington, Elegant Resorts, Business Express and in Healthcare at SSL International means I have a vast range of Marketing communications, rebranding, product launches, events and digital campaigns to draw my experience upon. Working for BJL agency Manchester allowed me to gain experience working to tight deadlines and McCann Erickson was my client at Fresenius Kabi.
I am currently Vice Chair of Friends of the Moor Knutsford (FOTM) and am dedicated to coordinating a new HQ for 1st Knutsford Scouts based on the Moor.
I am enthusiastic, chatty, energetic and I deliver things on brief, on time and within budget.
My aim is for Toft Creative to help your business achieve its communication goals and be a success.
