I studied Advertising and Public Relations and I loved projects related to marketing and sales and my thoughts were as far away from HR as possible. After graduation I was unsure and confused where to start my journey and decided not to pursue an agency career within advertising. I decided to take my chances and work for AIMS Egypt as I had done a few summer internships and enjoyed the ‘human’ side of Human Resources. I worked in administration then as a junior consultant and worked on mid career and specialist roles. I then found my love for research. I worked closely with a senior head, as a researcher, and that is where I found my passion for executive search and why I stayed in HR. I am a planner, I love challenges and I love finding answers, and here I got to do all those things. I moved from Researcher on a journey that took me to where I am now, I love my team and each new assignment without a doubt, we are constantly learning something new.

At home I am a wife and mother of 2 children, as a family we love music and music production professionally and for fun! We love to travel especially to exotic destinations and experience local food experiences in different countries.
