Kirsty started her career in Public Relations in London in 2002, working for an elite array of leading London based PR agencies before founding her own consultancy (Zebra PR) in 2006, aged 26.
Her experience spans both consumer and corporate PR, she has worked on a wide variety of remits for clients ranging from Mayfair based private equity houses and law firms, to FMCG giants, online dating sites, cosmetic brands, restaurants, diamond retailers - and everything in between!
Some of the brands and companies that she is proud to have represented include Westfield, ALDI, British Airways, Naked Wines Australia, P&G, Unilever, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Coca Cola, Rolls Royce Motor Cars, McWilliams Wines, Woolworths, ClubMed, Bacardi and Mars. Her key areas of expertise include retail, FMCG, food & drink, wine, health & beauty, equestrian, destination & travel, luxury and lifestyle.
Outside of work, while based in London, Kirsty enjoyed attending racing at Royal Ascot and the West End summer garden parties. These days Kirsty is mostly found at the stables, training young thoroughbred horses, or at the beach surfing or swimming. Her other hobbies include writing, photography and refurbishing vintage furniture. She is an aspiring Chef (with more enthusiasm than skill). With her sister Isla, she trekked to Machu Picchu in Peru in 2011, and climbed to the summit of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 2014. She lives on Sydney's Northern beaches with her fiancée Matt.
