Alongside being a highly creative, energetic and insightful facilitator at Aspire, Kitty is our in-house Graphic designer.

With a BA in Digital Film Production she is currently completing an MSc in Psychology at Birmingham City University.

Kitty’s fascination with people and exploring how they tick led to her starting her working life as an actress with major roles in TV shows like Doctors and Casualty. She taught personal branding and entrepreneurship to diverse groups of young people with challenging behaviour across London Boroughs helping them grow in confidence and expand their horizons in their lives and work.

After completing her degree in film, Kitty went on to work in the art department for film, TV, and theatre. Her projects included: working as a painter for Wes Anderson’s Isle Of Dogs, prop-making for the Olivier Award winning Jenny Tirimani for the famous Theatre Royal Stratford East pantomimes, and creating a huge number of graphic props for Channel 4’s popular comedy series, Damned.

We’re delighted to have Kitty as part of our team, whether sat at home on her fluffy pink desk chair thinking up ways to keep our graphics looking funky and fresh, or combining her acting experience, graphics expertise, and psychological knowhow in the training room. She has worked extensively on our public Presentation Skills courses as well as in house with some of our more creative corporate clients, most recently completing a series of online programmes with Palladium.

Kitty has nearly 100 houseplants in her small London flat and is a certified member of British Mensa.
