“I started my career at The Great Room as an intern. Having worked in executive roles previously, I was taking a big risk starting from scratch in an unfamiliar industry. It’s been two years since I took a leap of faith and I haven’t had a dull moment at work. The steep learning curve did make me feel a bit vulnerable at times but I had a steady support system to fall back upon. The Great Room doesn’t just offer a fulfilling work life but also some amazing friendships and a lifetime worth of crazy stories!”
