She won the 2020 Women in Live Music "Tour Manager of the year" award, has been a frequent panelist throughout the pandemic, and sits on the committee of the Tour Production Group.

We also discuss why it’s super important to look after your mental health when filling your calendar, the role that diversity and inclusion play in the touring world, and how keeping in touch with new friends can help you give and receive professional opportunities in the future.
